I am seeking a rewarding and challenging onsite (Raleigh/Durham, NC area) or remote position in order to utilize my experience, education and certifications.
I would be an excellent fit for this type of position as I have several years of experience in the medical field. I have two years of coding experience through my education and my previous employer. On December 5, 2015, I passed the AAPC National Exam, to become a Certified Professional Coder, on my first attempt with an 88%. After taking an ICD 10 Proficiency course, I took the AAPC’s ICD 10 Proficiency exam on January 30, 2016 and passed with a 96%.
