"Wallace instructors truly have such a massive impact on your academic journey." Ashlyn Cobb , Physical Therapist Assistant

Because of Wallace

Ashlyn Cobb graduated with her Associate in Applied Science Degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant in the Spring of 2022. A childhood knee injury was her first exposure to the PTA field, and the positive experience encouraged her to seek it out as a career. “Not only did the PTAs help me to physically recover, but they also helped me to not feel so scared, and thanks to them I was able to fully rehabilitate from my injury with no surgery necessary! Ever since that moment, I knew I wanted to become a PTA,” she said. During her three years at Wallace, Ashlyn was a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Sigma Kappa Delta English Honor Society, worked in the Wallace Campus Bookstore, and wrote the Bookstore’s monthly newsletter. After her graduation, Ashlyn passed her licensure exam and is employed as a PTA at a physical therapy clinic in Dothan.

“I believe anyone interested in pursuing a degree in healthcare should look to Wallace’s Health Sciences programs,” said Ashlyn. “From my own experience, the Wallace instructors truly have such a massive impact on your academic journey, and paired with amazing hands-on experiences and equipment necessary, WCC’s Health Sciences truly go a step above to help prepare future healthcare workers in their respective fields.”
