I have over 16 work years in the healthcare industry working in many different healthcare setting from a rural hospital, major insurance company, for-profit multispecialty clinic and eventually an integrated health system. My experience has been in the revenue management fields both in management and application systems. I have a B.S. from Bemidji State University in Business Administration. I fell into healthcare and in turn, fell in love with the field. That led me to pursue and receive a dual Master’s of Science in Health Information Management (HIM) and Information Technology Leadership (ITL). I am nationally certified as a Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) and have a certification in Health Informatics. I could not get enough of the business and compliance side of healthcare that I also went on to get a Master’s in Business Administration. I find this field exciting because it is constantly being updated and I want to share it with the world…I’m kind of a nerd that way. I want students who go through this program to fall in love with what they do – that is the key to success and wealth.
