I currently live in Port St. Lucie, FL but am willing to relocate for a secure full time position.

Dear Potential Employer,

I'd like to introduce myself, my name is Gerald E. Edgerton, but everyone calls me Jerry.
I became a victim of the economy in February of 2009, after spending more than a month searching for work with no prospects in sight; I enrolled in MedVance Institute hoping a career change to a Medical Billing & Coding Specialist would bring me more success in my job search. I completed my schooling in April of 2010, receiving my diploma with a GPA of 3.94. As a part of my course of study I spent three months externing at Lewis Health Institute. Learning in a working medical office was a wonderful experience; I enjoyed learning new tasks each day and grew fond of the doctors and staff in the office.
I am enjoying learning and growing in my new field of employment and would be more than willing to learn new aspects of my position to continue to grow with a company and take pride in being a part of the companies' success. I am a conscientious worker. I arrive early for work and stay after hours as necessary. I have no dependents and I am a healthy person who rarely calls in sick. I get along well with my co-workers. The positions I have held have required me to interact with and serve people, I take pride in giving excellent customer service, I believe in treating patients with respect, whether it is in person or on the phone, I also have experience training new employees. I can speak and understand the Spanish language fairly well and have a basic yet continually expanding knowledge of computers. I am familiar with Medisoft, Medical Manager and Medinformatix software. All of which I believe will be assets to have in my position.
Although I know I do not possess the amount of experience most companies are seeking, I am hoping to find a company that is willing to take a chance on a very dedicated & conscientious entry level employee. Since I am just starting out I can be trained in the manner your company seeks.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
