I am from Peoria and have always lived in this area. My husband and I have two adult children and two grandchildren.
While still a student at ICC, I began working as a Medical Transcriptionist at Proctor Hospital and have worked in the Health Information field since that time. It has been both interesting and challenging to be employed in different environments with a variety of tasks. I have worked for two acute care hospitals, consulted at a nursing home, and have been employed by a large medical practice/outpatient surgery center.
