    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello, my name is Alesia Jones. I live in Pittsburg, CA and I have been working in the healthcare industry for over eight years. My medical background started in Physical Therapy as a medical receptionist, which lead me to an opportunity to work for a large Orthopaedic medical group as the lead Front Office Coordinator. After mastering those positions several years later I was offered a position as the Office Manager in Pain Management where I helped build a practice with four Anesthesiologist. The practice has since changed directions and so have I. Now that I have my CPC, I am searching for a coding position. I am interested in working for a hospital or private practice either from home or on site. Please review my resume below and contact me if you have any positions available. Sincerely,Alesia Jones, CPC

    Unhappy Bay Area Job Search

    ALeshia, if you can't land a job in the bay area with your experience, there is no hope for those of us just out of coding school and trying to break into the field.

    Default amount of work experience helps, but....
