About Nicole

I am a certified coder and finished my degree in health information technology in less than two years. I graduated in June of this year with a GPA over 4.0. I currently have my own coding school where I teach my students anatomy and physiology, diseases of the human body, medical terminology, and outpatient medical coding.

I have been in the medical field for over 27 years with knowledge of medical billing, and once I decided to become a certified coder, I also decided to get in the classroom and teach others how to code. Trying to learn medical coding is not easy, and I have perfected my craft to try to make it easy for others to learn a difficult skill.

I have been a certified coder for 8 years. I graduated Cum Laude with my Associate of Science in Health Information Technology. I am a member of The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and The National Society of Collegiate Scholars. I am going to be sitting for my RHIT certification.

I will go to any lengths to make sure one understands the art of coding, to help one to be prepared to sit for their CPC or CCA coding certification.

Anatomy

As a medical coder learning ICD-10 it solely relies on knowledge of anatomy of the human body. I don't just teach my students how to code I teach them how the human body operates so they will have a better understanding of the concept of coding. It helps with learning why a particular code should be chosen over a different code.

Medical Coding

I am a Certified Profesional Coder through AAPC, soon to be graduate with my Associstes of Science in Health Information Technology, and will be sitting for my RHIT certification in August upon graduation.

Physiology

As a medical coder learning ICD-10 it solely relies on knowledge of how the human body operates or the physiology. I don't just teach my students how to code I teach them how the human body operates so they will have a better understanding of the concept of coding. This is really important when trying to understand how to code procedures in coding.

Very good tutor!

She help me with knowing where to look in the medical record for abstracting medical codes. She also help to break down the CPT guidelines with me.
