Certified Coder working as an Auditor

Best answers
I am a certified coder with the apprentice
after my credentials, but I have recently received the necessary
paperwork to send in and have that removed. I graduated with an
Associate's Degree in Medical Billing and Coding from Ultimate Medical
Academy in January 2011, with a GPA of 3.55. From April 2011 to
present I have been employed as a Billing Analyst through Select
Staffing for Walgreens Accounting. Since June 2011 I have been
auditing the billing and coding for 30 different medical sites for
Take Care Clinics through Walgreens. I am up to date with my CEU's,
attend monthly AAPC meetings, and webinars through Take Care Health
Systems. I am interested in a remote position, but could travel for
training, inservices, meetings etc. I am located in Indiana and would
consider onsite employment as well. Please see my resume below.
