Tamara Ellefson

MA-C, Kaiser Permanente Washington and Training Fund Trustee

In September, 2014, after working as a Medical Assistant for Kaiser Permanente Washington for 31 years, Tami became a Medical Assistant Certified.
“If not for the Training Fund in partnership with SEIU Healthcare 1199NW, Kaiser Permanente Washington, and Highline College, the road to the MA-C would have been much more challenging for me.”
