Position: Certified Medical Assistant.
Describe some of your job duties: I take patients to their rooms and obtain their vitals and past medical history for our providers. I remove staples for patients after their surgery. I help schedule follow-up appointments and some procedures and then contact their insurance company to prior authorize them. I help fit patients for braces.
Favorite thing about working at SPO: I love working with the staff and patients. I did my clinical rotation here before I was hired and I felt welcomed from the very beginning by both staff and patients. And, I know if I ever have any questions my co-workers are willing to assist or point me in the right direction.
Hobbies: I also love to swim and gardening, even though I don’t have the best green thumb. I also enjoy just having quality family time and spending as much time outdoors as possible when it’s warm enough.
Family/Pets: I’ve been married to my husband; Wesley, since January 2011 and we have two children Kinleigh who is almost 3 and Parker who is a year and a half. Needless to say they keep us very busy. We also have a cat named Cosmo.
If you could be any office supply item, what would you be?: A post-it. I would be lost without post-its.
