I am seeking a position in the Portland, Oregon area, but I am willing to consider relocation to another location in the state or out of state.

I received my certification 7/1/10, and I am eager to find a coding position or a position where my coding skills will add value. In addition to being a Certified Professional Coder, I have a Master's Degree in Health Education, with experience in health care (public and non-profit sectors).

As a Human Resources Manager, I solely handled benefits administration, giving me first hand experience working with insurance carriers.

My computer skills are excellent. Please see my resume below.
