McCoy, a 1986 graduate of Ridgway Area High School, moved back to the area from Kitanning about two years ago and works part-time at ERHC.
Phlebotomists draw blood from a patient's veins to collect samples for testing. McCoy said "phlebotomist" comes from the Greek word "phlebos," which means "vein."
"It basically means specializing in veins," McCoy said.
