Adrionna Hatfield, PVCC's 2019 Puma Choice Outstanding Alumni Award recipient, is among the first graduates of PVCC’s program in Healthcare Technology Systems. She was an honors student, and secured a coveted internship at Phoenix Children's Hospital. Adrionna was awarded several scholarships at PVCC, including the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) national scholarship. After graduating from PVCC's HTS program, Adrionna continued on to NAU where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Technology Management. During this time, she was selected to serve in a leadership role with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society. Adrionna is currently employed at CVS, where she focuses on her passion for Project Management. Adrionna volunteers her time as a valued PVCC Business/IT Advisory Committee member, and is a mentor to our incoming HTS students.
Like many students, Adrionna entered PVCC as an adult student. She was motivated by her desire to create a promising future both for herself and for her children. Adrionna found each and every PVCC professor she encountered supportive and encouraging. In particular, Michelle Carter, Abby Rusu and Gary Smith were her primary cheerleaders and played an integral role in her success at PVCC as well as her continued pursuit of learning.
Adrionna is particularly thankful for the convenience, accessibility, flexibility and economical tuition PVCC offers students. She took advantage of this environment by continuing to give back to her community as a Boy Scout Leader and Venture Scouts Crew Program Advisor. She is also active in the local chapter of Health Care Systems and serves on the local board.
