The challenges that Allen School has provided to me through their classes since beginning this course of Medical Coding and Billing has been, in a word, exciting. I try to meet the trials that each course subject brings with as much enthusi- asm and optimism as possible, and I can only say that my achievements would never have been possible without the wonderful, thorough and professional instructors that I have been privileged to learn from. Each and every one has contributed something of great value to my experience and I can only hope to take those lessons with me into what I hope will be an exciting career in my near future.
