Renita Revere, Manager of Clinical Student Services

AUC-Renita-Revere_082515_0954.jpgWith more than six years' experience working in higher education, I get a sense of pride knowing that I have helped many students achieve both professional and personal success. I joined AUC in 2014 as a professional development advisor for the Office of Student and Professional Development and now work with OCSA to ensure all students successfully complete their clinical sciences curriculum while rotating through various teaching hospitals. I am a native of West Virginia and a graduate of Marshall University, where I earned a bachelor's degree in business management and a master's in business administration with a specialization in human resource management.

 

Zerith McMillan, Senior Regional Clinical Advisor

Zerith-McMillan.jpgAfter nearly 10 years in higher education, I joined AUC in early 2014. Now, as senior regional clinical advisor, I plan and manage clinical rotations for third and fourth year medical students. This puts me in direct contact with students who are entering or continuing rotations at various outpatient clinics and hospitals, including our Miami affiliate, the Center for Haitian Studies. Outside of the office, my best moments are the ones I spend with my family. I am a weekend warrior on the basketball court and an avid sports fan of Miami area teams. 

 


Yaniet Rodriguez, Senior Hospital Coordinator

Yaniet-Rodriguez.jpgPrior to joining AUC, I earned a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in organizational leadership with a specialization in high education administration from Barry University. In 2006, I began advising undergraduate biomedical science students and have stayed in this field ever since. I thoroughly enjoy talking to students and helping them achieve their academic and career goals. I was raised in Miami and currently live there with my husband, daughter and two dogs. In my spare time, I love a good steak, reading fiction, and watching movies. 

 


Omayra Lambert, Senior Clinical Advisor

Omayra-Lambert.jpgI was born and raised in New York City and am Panamanian, Jamaican, and Bajan. I graduated from Rutgers University in May of 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in English, and was a member of Sigma Delta Tau and the Psychology honor society. Now, I’m actively enrolled in Keller University where I am obtaining my MBA. I previously worked as a substitute teacher for children with disabilities and have always dreamed of living on South Beach. Working for AUC has brought one step closer to that dream! My hobbies include DIY projects, event decorating, listening to music, shopping, cooking, traveling, and learning new things. 

 

Jose Gomez, Clinical Education Advisor

Jose-Gomez.pngI am proud to work for an institution with strong values and principles. Prior to joining AUC in 2016, I was a native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I came to the United States and enlisted in the U.S. Navy as a Hospital Corpsman for the 2nd Marine Division Weapons Company. I obtained my bachelor's degree in business from the University of Phoenix, a master's in business administration from the American Intercontinental University, and I am currently pursuing a doctorate in management from Northcentral University. I live in Miramar, Florida with my wife, two daughters and our dog, and I enjoy reading, lifting, and swimming in my spare time. 

 

Joshua Gutierrez, Clinical Education Advisor

Joshua-Gutierrez.jpgI started working with AUC in November of 2014. Since then, I have been working on my bachelor’s degree in business administration from DeVry and couldn’t be more excited for the future. I’ve found such a great, positive culture at AUC and I’m proud of our commitment to student success. Being able to assist students with their educational and professional goals inspires me every day. I particularly enjoy watching students find success at our annual residency “March Madness.” AUC is my family and I feel very fortunate to be a part of such a caring and devoted organization. 

 


Yvette Ramirez, Clinical Education Advisor

Yvette-Ramirez.jpgI joined AUC in 2015 after earning my bachelor’s degree at Boston College. I am currently pursuing my master’s degree from the Harvard Extension School. My time with AUC has been extremely valuable and enjoy working for an organization that is so dedicated to students’ educational success. There is no better feeling than knowing that I’ve played even just a small role in helping our students become competent physicians.
