Jelitza Quintero, an ophthalmic assistant with a bright smile and infectious enthusiasm, shared her inspiring journey on a recent radio interview. Originally from Puerto Rico, Jelitza found her calling in the US after exploring various paths, including dental assisting. Now, she thrives in the world of ophthalmology, her passion driven by a dedication to patient care and a love for learning about the fascinating complexities of the eye.

Jelitza's strengths lie not only in her technical skills but also in her remarkable ability to connect with patients. Her warm personality and fluency in Spanish create a welcoming environment, easing anxieties and bridging communication gaps for those who may struggle with English. She finds immense satisfaction in helping patients feel heard and understood, allowing them to fully grasp their diagnoses and treatment plans.

Despite the challenges, particularly mastering medical terminology in a second language, Jelitza embraces continuous learning. She encourages aspiring ophthalmic assistants to approach the field with a "why not?" attitude, emphasizing that hard work and determination can overcome any barrier.

Jelitza's story transcends her individual journey. It's a testament to the power of perseverance, the importance of community, and the joy of using one's talents to make a difference. Her willingness to share her experiences, coupled with her contagious optimism, serves as a beacon of inspiration for students and anyone seeking to find their own path to success and fulfillment.
