New Covenant staffer overcame obstacles to get where he is

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

As a student at Saginaw Valley State University, Sean Suitor struggled to focus in the classroom because of a condition called Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Despite the challenge, Suitor used his personal struggle to help people he met both on campus and out in the community, which helped him ultimately land a position with Covenant Healthcare in Saginaw.

While a student at SVSU, Suitor served as president of a student organization called Ability First. The group helps students with disabilities to meet the challenges of life on campus.

“For someone without ADHD, their track – or their thought process – is usually pretty straight,” Suitor said.

While everyone experiences obstacles, Suitor said for people like him, “my train track encounters a few more intersections, some sharp turns, and a few kinks, and I never really get that straight narrative.”

He said sometimes it just takes him longer to get to where he wants to go than the average person, but he eventually gets there.

Suitor credits his time working to help others at SVSU for helping him become more confident in his own abilities, which also opened doors for his future.

Suitor was recently hired as a microbiologist, after spending three years as a lab assistant. He completed his degree in medical laboratory science at SVSU in May.
