To Whom it May Concern:

I am contacting you regarding the Medical Billing and Coding position. My educational background is in Recreation Therapy and I just completed the Medical Coding and Billing curriculum at Miller-Motte on July 1, 2010. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and with perfect attendance in my program.
I have over 10 years experience in the financial and insurance industry in various positions. I have been very successful in training existing and new employees. I believe my success, in part, is due to my strong communication skills and attention to detail. I learn new systems very quickly and adapt to situations well. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss employment opportunities with your office and look forward to hearing from you.
