Student Highlight – Kayla Stoots

Kayla Stoots chose PIHT because of the small, hands-on atmosphere. “It seemed like the it would be the perfect fit for me,” she said. “So I went for it!”


Kayla chose the Medical Assisting Specialized Associate Degree program because she’s always had an interest in helping others. Her favorite parts of attending PIHT are the teachers, friends and hands-on learning. She explained, “We always did group work and presentations and I thought it was good for us!”


Kayla is currently employed with Highlands Hospitals Family Practices. She works for several physician offices. She hopes to further her education in the near future.

If Kayla could offer any advice to new students, it is to be confident and don’t be afraid to ask questions.


She would love to thank all of her teachers from grade school to college and her wonderful friends, family and boyfriend. Additionally, she would like to send a special thank-you to Gina Roman, the Career Management Director at PIHT. “She was my biggest supper and she is outstanding and beautiful,” said Kayla.
