Jessica Rodriguez, Medical Billing and Coding program, HDMC Temecula

Jessica Rodriguez is a single mother and a student at HDMC Temecula in the Medical Billing and Coding program. According to Jessica, she chose HDMC because HDMC offers both a supportive community and educational training targeted for healthcare careers. Jessica said, “I chose HDMC because out of all the schools near me they gave me more comfort and understanding what to expect in the medical field. From day one they all have been very informative and helpful with guiding me into my dream job, so thank you HDMC for this opportunity!” 

Jessica was nominated for the Student Spotlight by her Temecula instructor Patricia Rico, who said, “I was initially impressed with her communication skills… She sent an email introducing herself, and asked questions regarding the syllabus (she had already previewed). This to me showed: Initiative. During the duration of classes and curriculum, Jessica was on top of her assignments turning in a few days early, some times even a week early. For a student to do this demonstrates: Self-drive.” 

Instructor Patricia Rico is not only impressed with Jessica as a student, though. Rico continued on to say, “Jessica is not only a great student, she is a phenomenal person, I’ve observed this through her interactions with myself and her classmates. She will thrive in any office setting that she is assigned to and will be a team player. For all of her characteristics and drive to obtain a higher education is why I chose her for student spotlight.”
