Student Testimonial | Erica W., Medical Coding & Billing Online

Here's a Testimonial from Medical Billing and Coding Student, Ericka Walker who shared her journey to CHCP and her path into a career in Healthcare Administration through CHCP's Online programs:

Have you ever been clueless about where you wanted to be in life? Or even what you wanted to do? Well, I have!

I was clueless on where to start or even the direction to take. I’ve always wanted to be in the medical field but dealing with patients would have been a bit much for me knowing that it could be an emotional roller coaster.

So, I started looking on the administrative side of things and thought it would fit me best. Starting my journey was a hassle because I didn’t have a High School Diploma. I was getting to the point where I wanted to give up at times.

Listening to the radio one day gave me that confidence again, 97.9 spoke so highly about CHCP that I decided to give it one more try. I spoke with a very encouraging lady by the name of Tameika Price who helped me jump start my career in receiving my high school diploma. Then, I met one of the best student advisors in the world, Mr. Evan Guillory, who guided me through every step of the way.

I have received two honor roll certificates; one making it on the President’s Honor Roll List. I will be graduating August 2018 with a certificate in Medical Billing and Coding, in hopes of furthering my career with an Associate’s Degree in Health Information Management.

My journey with CHCP goes to tell you that giving up is not an option. I started off with nothing to offer but my hard work led me to my dream career focus. If I can do it, anyone can! It starts with YOU! There is always a way to make it work, all you need is a little more help and guidance.

Thank you so much CHCP.

Sincerely,

Ericka D. Walker
Student at the College of Health Care Professions
