Q&A with Boardman Training Center student, Donna Fero

  1. What were you doing before coming to BTC?

I’m currently a restaurant manager, so I work a lot. I also have three (adult) children. My youngest is graduating this year so I figured I can finally start a new path!

  1. Why did you choose BTC?

I chose to attend BTC because a good friend of mine did the program and had great things to say.

  1. What do you think about your classes?

I like my classes. I found that EKG was pretty easy and I enjoyed it and I love phlebotomy. Phlebotomy is a little harder, but much more interesting to me.

  1. What do you like about BTC?

I like how flexible BTC is. I had surgery and missed a few classes and everyone was extremely helpful in getting me caught up.

  1. What do you hope to obtain from BTC?

I would love to be able to find a job as a phlebotomist in a lab or hospital setting.

  1. Would you refer a family member or friend to BTC?

Absolutely! I have enjoyed every class here! I’ll be sad when I’m done – happy to have my certificate – but sad that classes are over.
