A 2011 alumna of the DCTC Medical Assistant program, Chrissy Gallagan joined the MA faculty in fall 2012.
Prior to DCTC, Chrissy obtained an A.A.S. degree in the Respiratory Therapist program from St. Paul College in 1995. She has worked in hospital and clinical settings ever since.
From graduation to 2004, Chrissy worked as a Respiratory Therapist at HealthEast St. Joseph’s Hospital in St. Paul, Minn. She moved into another Respiratory Therapist position at Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville, Minn., and stayed there until she obtained her degree from DCTC.
Chrissy brings real-life experience to her classroom even today, as she also works as a Certified Medical Assistant at HealthPartners Eagan Clinic.
Her teaching philosophy is, “Learning should be fun, exciting, rewarding, and challenging.” Chrissy is excited to be at DCTC and looks forward to this new experience.
