The best part about the SEIU-UHW Joint Employer Education Fund was that I got to go to school full time. All of my benefits were taken care of. I was still employed by Kaiser Permanente, and my position was held for me. How could I pass on that? I felt like if I wasn’t succeeding, or needed help, I always had somebody to help me. In November 2017 I graduated from the medical assisting program, which is sponsored by the Ed Fund, KP, and the San Francisco Foundation. Now my future is filled with unlimited possibilities.
