What brought me to KLR Certified Billing & Coding Specialist School was hearing about it through my school coach, it was the second option at first BUT I ended up loving this class much more than I thought, I took this class at about the beginning of June and finished by the end of June. I am from Kokomo, Indiana, and love crafts and painting. My process during this class was just doing what Ms. Katie said if you stay on track it keeps it pretty simple. My experience with Ms. Katie was amazing I was definitely nervous at first from what I was hearing about the class but she made it a very comfortable and fun experience and it easily became one of my favorite classes ever. I enjoyed everything, I mean the notes could give you carpal tunnel but it helps a ton to have them and to keep up on them as well. What helped me most during this class was all the notes and flashcards they definitely will help you a lot if you stay studied up on them and if you needed any help Katie was amazingly helpful as well. I plan on saving my certification because I plan on becoming a firefighter but I definitely would like to continue my knowledge in this subject because I think it is a good thing to have, my next goal is to wait until next fall and attend college to earn an associates degree in fire science and continue my educations/training.
Not really where I should begin but here it is. I grew up in Indianapolis where I was born and raised. Growing up my father was an alcoholic and my mother was a drug addict who left me with my father. My father raised me and eventually stopped drinking and waited for my mother to stop doing drugs. I got pregnant when I was 14. I had him at 26 weeks and 2 days and he almost did not make it. He is my miracle baby. He is who inspired me to get into the medical field because he has a lot of health issues and I like to be up to date on everything. My dad was my number one supporter on everything I did. My mother finally got clean about 5 years ago when I told her she could not see her grandchildren anymore until she got help. Well December of 2020 she found my brother who had hung himself and she relapsed. 4 months after my brother died, she od and was unable to be saved. My father was devastated, and he could not handle the pain. He started drinking again. 5 months after my mother passed and the day before my 27th birthday last year my father and my middle child's father got into, and he ended up shooting and killing my father. I tried everything to save him and could not. So, me finishing school is something I always wanted to do to make my father proud and that's what I'm doing. The reason I chose coding and billing is because I feel like if I start on the bottom of the chain by time I reach the top, I will know a lot and school will be easier to get through. I have always struggled academically because no one in my family has graduated. Now I live my life to show my children that they can accomplish any goals in life that they wish to do. And to never give up no matter what life throws at you. Being in this course with you and listening to your story has given me even more hope that I can do this. I enjoyed being in your classes. Thank you for everything. Thank you for not giving up on me :)
The reason that I decided to take the KLR Certified Billing and Coding specialist class is because I can apply to jobs to work from home. Having a child is hard looking for a babysitter here in Kokomo so I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to have more time with my baby and take care of him. At first I was nervous that the class would have been very difficult because just by the name Billing and Coding specialist it sounds that it would be hard to find the codes on the books. Then when I started taking the class I started to realize that it was just all in my head because as the days passed, finding the codes on the books got really easy.
Everything great, the class and the teacher. The teacher is great at explaining this class and is very helpful when we have a question, she always has an answer. If I had the free time I used to have before I started to work I would most definitely take her other class which is the KLR Pharmacy Technician.
I will now use my Certificate to get a better job and start working from home so I can spend more time with my baby. I'm grateful for this class because I didn't know what I was going to do when I wanted to have another baby. Like I said I couldn't even find a babysitter for my 1 child I have I can't imagine with 2. My next goal is now to wait till my baby grows a little more so I can get a degree in this class to get paid even better. For now I will let time decide what will happen in our future.
