Patient Services

I have had many interesting jobs.  I've done everything from popcorn wagon to office work in a car dealership to an insurance company to a large hospital group.  Somewhere in there, I decided that I would go to school to learn medical coding. 

After I graduated, I earned my Certified Coding Specialist credential through AHIMA. I left the hospital setting for a private orthopaedic practice. In July 2021, the stars aligned in my favor and I came to Body Renovation.  

I schedule appointments, verify insurance coverage and request authorizations for treatment, among other things. The behind the scenes at a private practice is so gratifying. It’s the tiny things that are easily overlooked that can have a meaningful impact on what our therapists can do.

My favorite food to cook:  I really love cooking.  I don't have a favorite. We like to try a variety of things. 

If I could visit anywhere in the world:  I would go to Ireland.  

Worst injury I ever suffered:  Worst injury is a three-way tie between falling down the stairs and breaking my right leg, getting into an argument with the trunk of my Saab and ending up with a concussion, and completely missing a step in the middle of the walkway to the apartment and falling hard and fast. That earned me a broken fingertip and a badly sprained wrist. That earns a spot because my doctor said "well, your hand isn't broken.  We found a healed fracture, though." In other words, I broke my hand at some earlier point in my life and didn't know. (No Saabs or stairs were harmed in any of these incidents.)

When I am not at work, I am:  I build Legos, read - currently suspense novels, and watch MCU movies.  I am very much looking forward to the new Deadpool movie this summer.

Bucket List Confession:  I want to walk the Gatlinburg SkyBridge. It's the longest pedestrian cable bridge in North America and features a section that is glass.  You can look straight down into the valley you're crossing.  

My quote to live by:  "I may not have gone where I intended, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be." Douglas Adams
