On February 3, 2011 the AAPC posted PASS on my account. I have yet to receive my certificate in the mail, so I do not know my number, but I am looking for employment. I graduated from Ultimate Medical Academy with high honors and am a member of the Alpha Beta Kappa Honor Society.

I do not have any prior experience in the medical office, but I have 27 years of experience in Hospitality and Real Estate. As you can see, I am a people person and have many years of customer service and administrative office duties. I have included a copy and paste of my resume.

If anyone is interested or knows of someone who may be interested in speaking with me please feel free to contact me. I would consider a position at an extern site with a chance of employment after extern term.

Thank you,
Gail Barnhart.
