RICH Clinic Certified Medical Assistant Team

Rasheena, Latoya, and Sandy have all proven to be incredible assets to the RICH Clinic Team. They have built excellent rapport with our clients and coworkers and have contributed to the growth of the clinic services during their time here. All three are hardworking and willing to help wherever possible. Each has stayed late to help out in the clinic or see a client who was late on several occasions, without even being asked. They all joined the clinic during a time of a lot of changes (COVID operations, moving buildings at one point, opening the new clinic space) and have taken it in stride and ensured that our clients receive the best possible care. We thank you.
