Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my home page!

I have taught in the Health Information Technology Department for 13 years. I hold a Doctorate in Higher Education, a Masters degree in Public Health, and I have been an RHIT since 1979. I began working in health information in 1971, in the acute care setting.  Over the course of several decades  I worked as a Medicare Coder, a DRG Coordinator, Revenue Cycle Manager,  and an Evening Supervisor. I came to Oakton as a facilitator and instructor in 1999 as adjunct faculty, but since that time I worked for the AMA as a Senior Policy Analyst in Quality and Performance Improvement activities, working with multiple national agencies to advance the Affordable Care Act.  I returned to Oakton as full-time faculty in 2011.

Our profession is one of innovation and change, and we rely heavily on our knowledge base in both clinical and information systems. I hope to bring to the classroom my enthusiasm for our profession and my love of learning.
See you in class!
