To Whom it may Concern:

I am submitting my resume for a position of a Medical Billing and Coding Specialist. Currently, I am actively seeking to be employed full time and would be available ASAP. (I am currently doing a temp. job for Lloyd staffing doing medical scanning.) I have recently received my CPC-A certification.

I believe I would be an asset to your company because I am diligent and hard working, I am self-directing when fully briefed on the assignment/project. I have high work ethics and job standards, and work to my fullest potential. I find Medical billing work exciting because it challenges me to continue learning.

I strongly believe that my dependability and the knowledge I have gained through the certifications through AAPC and my college, Word, Excel would contribute positively to your agency's growth and profitability.

I am interested to further explore employment opportunities with regarding employment that compliments my job skills.

Sincerely,

Deb Kleinhuizen
