Marina “Nina” Gonzalez, 2013 Advanced Medical Billing & Coding Graduate

“Keep going. Keep pushing. Live today like it is an interview for tomorrow…”

~Marina “Nina” Gonzalez

These words to live by come from Marina “Nina” Gonzalez, a West View campus graduate, currently a Risk Adjustment Coding Specialist. Her position allows her to work from home and make her own schedule. Her ability to create her own schedule at Capstone Performance Systems also allows her to continue working with the elderly through a PACE program to ensure they get the care they need.

As a Risk Adjustment Coding Specialist, Nina is responsible for assigning all diagnoses that are defined and supported within client documentation, as well as providing support to clients and travelling to client locations to manage documentation training. She plans to move upward within her company and obtain her Certified Professional Coder (CPC) certification in the coming year.

Nina found Career Training Academy to be welcoming with training that was all encompassing, meeting all the needs of her demanding career. The vast amount of information provided by the instructors has proven invaluable to her as she advances and prepares for further certifications.

She looks confidently to her future, “You never know where you’ll go by striving and making a lasting positive impression on those around you.”  We congratulate Nina for her successful career in Medical Billing and Coding and wish her continued growth and development.
