    Billing Administrator

    United States - Last active: 07/20/2013 - Tests: 8

    Experienced billing administrator seeking to utilize and expand current skills in a new or different work environment. I have worked in the medical billing field for 12 years, the past 4 as a supervisor for a national durable medical equipment company. During this time, I was also a partner in a tile setting company with my husband. The economic downturn hit the construction industry hard in our area forcing us to close the business in 2009. My husband has since enrolled in college full-time and is 2 years away from receiving a bachelor's degree in Information Technology/Business Administration. My current postition has given me oportunities I never thought possible. I am a confident manager, have patience to deal with anything thrown at me, I thrive on deadlines, and I get excited when given an impossible problem to solve. Sharing my research and knowledge with the rest of the company is one of my most important roles as a manager is only as good as their employees. I am not unhappy with my current carrier but I am searching for other ways to earn an income as well as build upon my current skills. I feel that a person should never stop learning or challenging oneself and I am hopeful this will open the door to new oportunites for me. I truly appreciate your time and consideration of me for employment. I am currently only available evenings and weekends but I will put 100% into any project I am given just like I do in the rest of my life.
