Rebecca is a nationally-certified medical assistant. Her initial training was in the U.S. Air Force as a medical service specialist working with the Aeromedical Evacuation Staging Facility at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. She has worked as a medical assistant in various specialties for the greater part of her adult life. She joined the Center for Weight Loss in January 2018 and has enjoyed this team and our patients since day one. In her view, “the pre- and post- operative bariatric journey is one where both patient and staff are a care team together, a sort of extended family. I admire the profound change our patients are willing to make to improve their quality of life both physically and mentally. It is an inspiration.” In her free time, she enjoys gardening, hiking and music. Rebecca is also the principal singer in a local jazz ensemble that performs at private functions, retirement communities and assisted living facilities.
