Local Chapter:
Portland Rose City Oregon
Coder for Physician Billing Office at Providence Health & Services
Endocrinology, Neurology, Primary Care, and Hospitalist.
I attended Concorde Career College and earned my diploma in Medical Office Administration. After graduation, I was hired as a Medical Records Specialist for a year at Portland Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialists. While working in this capacity, I began to study to take the AAPC's Certified Professional Coder exam. I passed on my first try and became a Certified Professional Coder Apprentice. I then went to work as a coder for the Physicians Billing Office at Providence Health & Services. After my first year, my supervisor wrote a letter to support removing the Apprentice status. I then became a CPC. I am still coding for Providence Health & Services. I started coding Primary Care and Hospitalists. Then I started coding Endocrinology and Neurology. It has been 3 years and 3 months since I started. This spring, I was accepted into the Health Information Management program at Portland Community College. I start the program next month. It is a 2 year online program. I plan to take the exam to become a Registered Health Information Technician as well as a Certified Coding Specialist. It's all about staying up-to-date and learning new things regularly.
Spending time with my family, reading mystery novels, putting together puzzles, and traveling.
