Roxanne D.
Patient Information Management, B.B.A.
Class of 2018
OBGYN Office Administrator
Northwell Health
BEFORE PLAZA
Prior to attending Plaza College, Roxanne D. was working on Wall Street at Broadridge Financial Solutions. Each day was filled with client phone calls that lacked a sense of connection.
As a people person, Roxanne wanted to interact with clients in a more personal capacity. She wanted to have a positive influence in their daily lives.
When Roxanne heard of numerous jobs within her field being outsourced, she started to worry. She explains, “I felt as though my job security was slipping away, I needed stability.”
WHY SHE CHOSE THE MEDICAL FIELD
Upon researching options for a career change, Roxanne became inspired by the medical field. She was excited by the opportunities she read about, so she began looking into local schools.
One day, during her commute, the sign for Plaza College caught her eye. She decided to inquire for more information and was pleased to learn of the Health Information Technology program.
While at her first meeting, she enrolled in classes and began her journey. She recalls, “Everyone was very supportive and I knew this was a step in the right direction.”
HOW SHE USES HER DEGREE EVERY DAY
As an employee of Northwell Health, Roxanne feels that Plaza prepared her in various ways to enter the world of patient care.
“I was more than prepared to begin working for Northwell. My professors enforced the importance of professionalism. They kept me on my toes with deadlines, which made me more responsible.”
WHY SHE ENCOURAGES OTHERS TO CHOOSE THE MEDICAL FIELD
Since transitioning into the medical field, Roxanne feels that her opportunities have grown tremendously.
“If you feel stuck in your current job, you’re not. You can create a new path for yourself. Switching careers opened so many doors that I didn’t know existed.”

Tamickyo C.
Patient Information Management, B.B.A.
Class of 2019
Patient Access Representative
Winthrop University Hospital
BEFORE PLAZA
Tamickyo C. first graduated from Plaza in 1997 with an Associate’s Degree in Accounting. Wanting to pave her own path in life, she leveraged her business skills and held a successful career in the automotive industry for nearly 20 years.
However, despite her longevity in the field, she was tired of the long, grueling hours and wanted a lifestyle closer to the one she had envisioned for herself. Going back to school was a definite, so she turned to Plaza for help with her next venture.
WHY SHE CHOSE THE MEDICAL FIELD
Tamickyo comes from a family of doctors, so the medical field seemed to be the logical choice. But, she was still unsure.
“After working for 20 years in the car industry, I wanted to find a more lucrative field. Even though I tried to find another way, all signs were leading me to the medical field.”
She did plenty of research, met with Plaza faculty and administrators, and decided that the most logical and beneficial choice for her was to enroll in the B.B.A. program with a focus in Patient Information Management.
HOW SHE USES HER DEGREE EVERY DAY
During Tamickyo’s final semester of school, she began her externship at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center. The skills she had developed at Plaza gave her the necessary tools to excel in a professional capacity.
Just two weeks after completing her externship in August 2019, Tamickyo accepted her first job offer from Winthrop University Hospital in Long Island as a Patient Access Representative.
She exclaims, “I am so excited to begin my new career at Winthrop. I am stepping into my role with confidence that I’ve gained through my courses and externship!”
WHY SHE ENCOURAGES OTHERS TO CHOOSE THE MEDICAL FIELD
The medical field is filled with opportunity. Tamickyo says, “There really is something for everyone. Growing up, I didn’t have an interest in patient care, but there are so many other entities.”
Working in a health profession, you can continue climbing the ladder until you reach your ultimate goal. “There is always plenty of room for growth in the medical
field. If you want more, you can achieve it,” she emphasizes.
Making a difference in a person’s well-being gives each day purpose for her. “I know I can put a smile on someone’s face and calm their worries. I want to wake up every day and make a difference!”
