Lisa Pruitt

Career Quest Graduate & Employer

Lisa was taking care of an elderly couple, which she loved doing. But she wanted to help even more people and families. “I decided to start my own company,” Lisa said. She knew she needed to further her education in order to be successful, so she started at Career Quest in the medical assistant program. “The education, the professors, the instructors were amazing,” Lisa recalled. “My goal was to get the most out of it.”

She has now owned her own company for four years. “I started Home Healthcare Angels LLC to provide the ultimate care for patients at home,” Lisa said. She relies upon Career Quest externs and graduates to help staff her company. “They’re dependable, they’re professional and they’re so eager to learn. They come from Career Quest ready to start a career.” Lisa added, “I would recommend Career Quest externs to other home care agencies.”

Lisa attributes her low employee turnover to the quality of Career Quest students and graduates. “Half of my staff is made up of Career Quest graduates. Career Quest has played a huge role in the success of my business.”

Lisa’s advice to future Career Quest students: “If you’re looking for a career for your future, take this serious. It’s very important for a real success story.”

SUCCESS STORY

“I tried community college and it was not for me; I was just overwhelmed. I learn better in small groups. At Career Quest, it was almost like a family. Everyone’s willing to help one another and the teachers are awesome. I’ll be sad to leave!” 

SUCCESS STORY

"I thought, why not go back to school and be able to help a family, give them that comfort that I received?"
