Jazmeen Chinn, MS’18

My preceptor is another person who I plan to keep in my life. She has gone out of her way to introduce me to the inner-workings of the health care system, along with insuring that I get my foot in the door and providing me with all the steps necessary to succeed, she is a true mentor.
