Jordana Stokes, CMA
Jordana began her career in the healthcare field immediately after high school, joining a dermatology practice that cultivated her devotion to helping others. During that time, Jordana attended college and completed a medical coding program, which then gave her full knowledge of a patient’s visit from beginning to end. Once she earned her certificate, she began working as a billing specialist. Realizing that this was not the path for her, she decided to take medical assistant courses and became certified. Working as a medical assistant provides her with the opportunity to do what she loves while engaging with patients and assisting with their care. In September of 2020, Jordana happily joined Vive Aesthetics and Wellness, achieving her goal to help patients again and taking full advantage of the opportunity to build a career that she truly enjoys.
