Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS)
Tell us a little about yourself?
I've been in Healthcare for over 15 years in various roles and a number of great organizations. I've been involved with chargemaster functions, business office management, front end revenue cycle and now I'm the System Director of Revenue Integrity responsible for charge capture and process standardization for our 15 hospitals in Wisconsin and Illinois. I grew up in the Madison area, attending Edgewood College for my bachelor's in Business and I earned my MBA from University of Iowa. I'm dual certified in Epic for Hospital and Professional Billing, and I recently earned my CHFP credential.
What are 3 words to describe your company?
What does a typical day look like for you?
I'm a single mom to three young kids (a 5 year old and 3 year old boy/girl twins) so not a single day is the same. I'm up early getting them ready for school/daycare, to work and then back to pick them up before after school activities, dinner, baths and bedtime. After they are in bed, I catch up on email, reading or enjoy a glass of wine.
What is on your wish list for the next 10 years?
World peace. Is that too much to ask?
You’re happiest when?
I love spending time with my kids and watching them explore, learn and grow. We spend lots of time at the parks, farmer's markets in the spring/summer and spending time with friends.
Why did you join HFMA Wisconsin?
I joined HFMA Wisconsin because my early career mentor was a member and officer. She was very supportive and encouraging of exploring various areas of interest - even when that meant I would leave working for her twice for other opportunities. I've really enjoyed meeting so many great people and I look forward to getting more involved in the chapter through volunteering.
