Tamarra Royal – Student Highlight

Meet Tamarra, our featured student for the week!

Tamarra Royal

Tamarra is enrolled in the Phlebotomy Technician and Medical Office Specialist programs at Boardman Training Center. She started at BTC in November of 2018 and has loved her experience so far.

Before starting at BTC, Tamarra worked in the restaurant industry, living paycheck-to-paycheck with no real goals. She eventually got tired of this and realized she wanted a career and not just a job.

Looking for a change in her life that would lead to a better future with a great career, and not just a job, Tamarra decided to enroll at BTC, where smaller class sizes and one-on-one attention from faculty enable students to succeed.

“I wanted to do something in the medical field, and this was the perfect stepping stone,” said Tamarra.

Tamarra previously attended another college for a short time and found it to be too stressful while working and going to school. She wanted a program with more personalized attention and flexibility.

“My favorite part of attending BTC so far has been the people and the experience. The program is super flexible so I can work, I know exactly when exams are, and I enjoy utilizing Google Classroom,” said Tamarra. “Nikki, Steven, and Dave are my favorites and I can’t choose between them!”

Tamarra loves that her phlebotomy and medical office programs are straight to the point and that she can take the exact classes she needs in order to graduate sooner.

She also loves the personalized attention she receives from instructors. “If you’re holding the needle wrong, the teacher will stop you and show you exactly how to do it correctly.”

Tamarra highly recommends Boardman Training Center and has referred friends and family to train for medical careers at BTC. The chance for a better future, no longer living paycheck-to-paycheck, not as may crazy hours, and more time to spend with family are just a few of the benefits of BTC she has shared with others.
