What are your current job responsibilities?
I serve as part of our clinical documentation improvement team. We review inpatient charts for complete documentation, and we write physician queries when they are appropriate.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in health information management?

Reading, watching baseball, and going to the beach

Do you have a personal motto that you live by?
“When God brings you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him completely and let go. One of two things will happen; He'll either catch you when you fall or He'll teach you how to fly.”
