Personal Statement
I am a friendly, dedicated worker with great ambition and the determination to succeed. Although I mainly have skills in customer service, I am open and willing to learn more. I am always up to a challenge in any given situation. I work well with other people as well as working efficiently on my own. I believe if I take care of the company, then the company will take care of me; and I am dedicated to giving my very best to my employer.

Work Experience
Office Administrator (October 2013 – Present)
Hanger Clinic, Colorado Springs
I was responsible for the immediate reception of patients entering and exiting the clinic, ensuring that they were greeted professionally and kindly and that their information was entered correctly in the database for insurance verification. My duties also included scheduling, data entry, insurance verification, and customer service representation, settling disputes and ensuring patient satisfaction.

During these two years, I have had experience in scheduling and time management.
