HCA Instructors


Health Care Assistant Program (HCA)

Since completing her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1993, Marizen has acquired over 30 years of experience in a variety of healthcare settings. This is complemented by 10+ years as a classroom and clinical instructor, curriculum developer, program coordinator and subject matter expert.

She comes from a long line of educators, and teaching is her passion. She places a high value on cultural competence in being able to understand her clients and students from their unique perspectives to build strong relationships and positive outcomes.

Marizen believes that patience, perseverance and a positive attitude are all key, and one of her favorite quotes is: “I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it” – from the Attitude poem of Charles Swindoll

Success Story

Thanks to Drake Medox College and their Biggest Contest Ever promotion I was able to go with my family to Spain and France for 3 weeks! This was a great opportunity for us to visit our relatives and friends back home and do some traveling as well. I recommend Drake Medox College to others as not only do you learn so much from their teaching staff and training provided but also make new friends as well.
