RssFull revenue cycle expertise,certified HIM,Mangement Consulting and lots of energy

I love to train people and as a consultant I was able to use all of my experiences to see others grow and expand their businesses. I enjoy working idependently and also collaborating with a team. I enjoy travel up to 50% and especially like working on process improvement and the full revenue cycle. Analyzing information, data mining and accounting projects are my favorites. I like it best when I can be hands-on working with other people for training.
