    My salary unfortunately has never lined up with my credentials and my education, not even close. With over 20+ years of experience and 4 credential with a college education, I must be a few out of the majority on these rankings.

  2. Bridget says:

    I have to agree with Cathy’s comment. The salary has never come near lining up with my education or experience. And I live in the PNW where the salary is one of the highest.

  3. Debbie Beal says:

    So glad to hear you both say that because I though I was the only one I don’t know many people unless they are in management that these salaries compare with either people are fibbing about how much they make or AAPC is increasing the value of credentials.
