• What do you enjoy most about working for MedComm?

    The people with which I work and the fact I never get bored.

  • How does MedComm make you feel valued as an employee?

    Management does really care about who I am and not just what I can do for them.

  • How long have you been working at MedComm?

    Since October, when MedComm took over the AMS employees. I’ve been with AMS since Feb 2002, so all together, 15 years.

  • What professional values are most important to you?

    Performing duties to the best of my ability, understanding that what I do affects a patient’s medical history and a provider’s reimbursement.

  • During your tenure with MedComm, how have you developed in your career?

    When I first started with AMS and continued into MedComm, I was primarily follow-up or AR. Today I am working towards my CPC license (currently working on my Anatomy class). I’ve been coding for almost a year; predominantly GI and OB coding for anesthesia, however I have recently begun training on all anesthesia claims.

  • During your tenure with MedComm, what are 3 career lessons you’ve learned?

    1) Business mergers are not as scary as I first thought.
    2) Dedicated hard work pays off.
    3) I’m not too old to start something new.

  • What is the most important aspect of your job?

    Accuracy.

  • What is your personal mantra?

    Never use the phrase “that’s not in my job description.”

  • You’re happiest when…?

    I’m on a North Carolina beach with my family.

  • Name 3 interesting things about you that your co-workers might now know.

    1) I’ve been an avid Buckeye (I’m a ’92 graduate) and Dallas Cowboys fan since I was in middle school and probably know more about the game than my brothers.
    2) I am from Annapolis, Maryland (which is the reason for being a Cowboy fan – Roger Staubach played for the Naval Academy).
    3) My grandfather (just turned 97) was born in Bordeaux, France, came to the U.S. at age 19 because my great-grandfather (American) did not want him fighting in WWII for the French. He is listed as deceased in the Smithsonian as he is one of only 2 surviving pilots from Torpedo 8. (When his squadron went up on their fatal mission, he was in the infirmary due to trying to steal fruit from a farmers field, he jumped a fence and caught his large knife on his belt which caused him to lacerate his thigh). He and his squadron are on the cover of a very old Life Magazine. He’ll tell you to just Google him. Oh, and I cannot speak French, much to his dismay.
