Johanna Mackey’s experience at Terra State has come full circle. From being a student to now an adjunct instructor in the program she graduated in, Mackey is excited to inspire and help students as she was only a few short years ago.
Mackey graduated from Terra State in 2019 with an Associated of Applied Science in medical assisting, an Associate of Arts in pre-psychology, and a certificate in phlebotomy.
She proved herself to be a hard worker, balancing learning, working, and providing for her family at the same time.
“I had the nice flexibility of doing it all and getting it done,” said Mackey, “My family was basically the part of me that kept me going. I kept looking at my boys and wanting to finish school to prove to them that no matter what age, you can always finish school and get your degree.”
Before becoming an adjunct instructor, Mackey worked at Magruder Hospital and ProMedica. She currently works part time at Retina Vitreous Associates as an optometric technician and photographer. Mackey is also a certified Zumba instructor, leading classes in her free time.
