One of my greatest joys in instructing in the Advanced Medical Transcription program is seeing the difference that education makes in a student's life. As the student grows, so does the student's confidence and ability.
I am a graduate of the Advanced Medical Transcription program and joined Selkirk College in 2002 as one of two instructors in the Advanced Medical Transcription Program. I have also worked online as a medical transcriptionist for a U.S. based company.
I earned my Registered Medical Transcriptionist credential in 2007 and have been a loyal member of Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity for a number of years. I am an active member of the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity Credentials Development Team (2010, 2011), and the Educator Alliance Committee. I work diligently reviewing and editing material. I assisted with revising the Medical Transcription Text Reviewer in 2007, worked on a Focus Group to explore and evaluate Using Medical Terminology in 2008, and was a reviewer for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Guide in 2010. I have also presented numerous professional peer presentations over the last several years and have mentored through Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity and organized and held an Registered Medical Transcription study group. I volunteer for civic activities such as the Trail Association for Community Living and Special Olympics.
Being a Fellow of Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity is an acknowledgment not only of professional excellence but also a commitment to service and leadership as a contributory volunteer within the industry. It is an honor that signifies an individual has embraced a balance of successful professional and personal activities that go beyond every day transcription practice.
In my leisure time I enjoy playing with my dog, cooking, home decorating, reading, music and yoga. I was born in Newfoundland, and have been across Canada a number of times.
