Graduate Comes Back to Career Fair, This Time as an Advocate for Her Employer
May 18, 2012
Graduate Stacy Scott found a great job after her graduation from the medical billing and coding program at the Bristol Campus. She is the new office manager for Miller Family & Sports Chiropractic where she handles billing and payments as well as schedules appointments.
Stacy wanted to find a career in the medical billing field because she thought the healthcare industry was growing and she enjoyed the behind the scenes clerical work in that environment. She began a search for a medical billing and coding training program and chose National because it gave her the opportunity to attend a class in person (compared to online programs) as well as the job placement assistance. She is glad she chose National because she liked the one-on-one instruction and felt the faculty was knowledgeable and helpful.
On April 25th, Stacy attended the Bristol Campus career fair but not as a job seeker – as an employer representative, together with her boss, Dr. Heith Miller. She got the opportunity to speak to students about her own success and even promote her new business as a great place to work.
“The bulk of our practice is family health care, but I do specialize in sports injury,” noted Dr. Miller, who has trained under one of the country’s leading sports medicine chiropractors. “A lot of the same procedures, a lot of the same techniques that the Olympians are getting treated with, I’m also offering here at our office.”
Dr. Miller described the attributes that led him to hire Stacy. “What I was looking for was, obviously someone with a great personality…I needed someone who was knowledgeable in the field of billing,” he explained. “I needed someone who could come in and basically start work, that I didn’t have to sit down and walk them through all the steps.” Dr. Miller noted that he conducted about 40 interviews before ultimately choosing Stacy as the best candidate.
