My name is Christina. I have been in the customer service and medical industry for 23 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with customers over the phone and via the internet. I have 4 years of scheduling and office management. I have mastered Generations Software and am very versed in other programs as well. I have pretty fast typing and I always know when I have made an error and go and fix it. I am a stickler for that sort of thing. I have excellent spelling and am often contacted from family and friends in other states on the correct spelling of words. I know it sounds strange, but it's true.
