Position Statement Question

What makes you uniquely qualified as an educator or practitioner to serve on CEE? (Please include what capacity/degree level of programming in academia.)

 

Position Statement Answer

I believe I bring both the educator and practitioner components to the table. I have been a program director at the associate’s level and an adjunct professor at both the bachelor’s and master’s degree levels. I hold a doctorate in business administration, a master’s in strategic leadership, and a bachelor’s in health information administration. As a practitioner, I have worked for a large teaching university as a supervisor, owned a small medical transcription service organization, and currently have been an HIM director for over six years.
