Jaimie Francis CE '14 - Psychology, Community Health and Wellness

The decision to go back to school can be an overwhelming one for some, but for Jaimie Francis '14, the decision was accompanied by overpowering excitement and enthusiasm... so much so that she's even coming back for more.

Jaimie was working fulltime at Harbor Medical Associates in Scituate, MA when she decided to enroll at Curry College. Now, after earning a bachelor's degree with a double major in Psychology and Community Health and Wellness, she returns to campus this fall to attain her MBA.

"I was working as a supervisor at Harbor when I decided to enroll. I was looking to enhance my career, but I was also looking for personal fulfillment. I can still vividly remember the day as if it were yesterday. I was very excited to start the journey of getting my bachelor's degree," she says of her experience enrolling at Curry as a continuing education student.

Now the Practice Manager at Harbor Medical Associates, Jaimie is preparing to advance her education even further to continue paving the way to her dream career. "I am passionate about healthcare and do not see myself ever leaving the field. I hope to continue to grow and would love to be at the helm of an organization."

In her current role, no day ever resembles another. One of Jaimie's primary focuses is analyzing data to determine how the practice is doing in regards to patient satisfaction, quality improvement measures, and metrics. Her favorite part about her career, though, is the interactions she has with patients.

"I meet such a diverse group of people every day and it's what I love. I really enjoy problem solving and feel a sense of accomplishment when I am able to help them, whether it is in a large or a small way."

Though managing operations of a large primary care practice while simultaneously advancing her education was a bit challenging at times, Jaimie's passion for the healthcare field allowed her to manage the two worlds flawlessly.

Her advice to others who are thinking about furthering their education? Just do it.

"It sounds so cliché but I would say 'just do it!' It seems pretty scary to jump back into school, but Curry offers excellent resources and the professors have your back. You will learn so much and if you are like me, you'll be inspired by the professors as well as your fellow classmates."
