Who could have imagined…..

July 24, 2009

My name is Lori Montgomery and I am a graduate of Herzing online. Please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. In 1993 I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis, I had never heard of this disease but learned that it is an autoimmune disease like Lupus. After suffering for a while with pain and an inability to get out of bed, I began to lose my sight, I have no vision in my left eye and very little in my right eye.   I am in a constant battle to keep from going totally blind.

After years of doing nothing and living on disability I began to think about returning to school but I knew that I could not sit in a classroom for hours so I started investigating online colleges.  I called a few but when I spoke to my Herzing online admissions person she made me feel as if I could do anything, she made things for me very easy to get started and I enrolled into the Medical Billing and Insurance Coding program.

It did not take long before I was calling her wanting to quit or calling crying; it was hard at first but EVERYBODY there had faith in me.  They could see how well I was doing; I did not know because I was afraid to look at test scores and asked the staff to view them for me. It was a stressful time, but I graduated with a 3.89 GPA, a honors student.   Who could have imagined that a visually impaired mother of two and grandmother of one would graduate with honors, certainly not I?  Not only have I graduated from Herzing College Online but I passed the Nationally Certified Insurance and Coding Specialist certification exam. To be honest, none of this would not have been possible if it were not for the staff at Herzing; I had some awesome teachers who went above and beyond the call of duty to help not just me, but my classmates who had challenges to overcome as well.

If you are considering going back to further your education please give Herzing a call. I know you will have a great experience just as I did, they not only care that you do well in the courses but the care about you as a person and will use all of their resources to make sure that you get the best education possible.  Your future starts today, call Herzing today.
