PIHT Student Highlight: Sarah Taylor, Medical Office Administration

sarah taylorSarah Taylor chose to attend Pennsylvania Institute of Health and Technology because she was seeking a field of study that would be dependable for a career in her future.

She explained, “I knew I could not go wrong with the medical field and I wanted a school that was hands-on, where I would be known by name and not as a number and one where I could get one-on-one instruction from my teachers when I needed it. PIHT had everything I wanted and more.”

Sarah has followed her mom’s footsteps and has entered the medical field. “I am not one who wants patient contact and clinical procedures, so Medical Office Administration was a great choice for me”

As a student at PIHT, she is pleased with the close relationships she has developed with not just new friends, but teachers, as well. “Everyone is so nice,” she said. “It is a great environment for learning.”

Sarah’s grandparents all the way in Florida are her biggest supporters. She said, “They have always supported me in everything that I have done my entire life. They may not be able to make to everything in my life living so far away, but they go above and beyond to somehow some way be a part of just about everything I do.”

Sarah would also like thank her mom for being her guardian angel. “She keeps me safe, watches over me and guides me down the paths that I have taken in my life.” She also wants to thank her grandparents for their continuous support in everything she does and for their love for her. Additionally, she would like to thank her friends at PIHT for their support in school and life. Lastly, she would like to thank all of her teachers – Ryan Langley, Lisa Durbin, Gina Roman, Melissa Pulice, Roxanne Seaton, Elinor Mundel and Pam Hughes – for their support, knowledge and guidance. “You all go out of your way to make learning enjoying and have made my education the best it could be.”

Sarah went on to further explain, “Graduation is approaching faster than ever. When I began my first day at PIHT, 18 months sounded like forever. Little did I know, time would fly by. Graduating is bittersweet; I am so excited to get out of the fast-food business and to better myself and my future, but I am going to miss the school environment at PIHT, my teachers, and especially my friends that are leaving with me and the ones I am leaving behind.

Sarah lives by this quote by Mother Teresa: “People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway. If you are honest and thoughtful, people may cheat you; be honest and thoughtful anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build it anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway. You see in the final analysis it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.”
