I am a motivated individual who would like to become a part of a healthcare team with room for personal learning and growth. Recently, I put my career on hold to celebrate the arrival of my first child. I am now ready to get back to my passion, which is my billing and coding career. I obtained my coding certification through AAPC in 2008. Through my professional history, I've obtained specialty experience in pediatrics, orthopedics, and anesthesia.
