I was extremely excited to learn of the need for a Midlevel provider; as my career goals and expertise are directly in line with this opportunity. My experience working autonomously in Rural Alaska coupled with Extensive Telemedicine experience has provided me with excellent knowledge of remote medicine, Primary Care, Occupational Health, Geriatric medicine, employee relations, staff development and other relevant skills required of an effective team leader.

The following are highlights of my qualifications and accomplishments:

-Telemedicine, Occupational Medicine and surveillance testing experience

-Certified Medical Examiner

-Extensive Trauma/Emergency medical care experience

-Work in coordination with planners to set up new Rural Clinics and healthcare systems

- Extensive Telemedicine Transcription and Remote Dictation Experience

-Excellent management of acute/chronic patient care and critical thinking needed for emergency


-Excellent procedural skills: joint injections, suturing, dermatology procedures, slit lamp use,

incision and drainage.

-Provide leadership and training to Trauma Teams at different sites (I am also a CPR instructor)

My diverse experience in public and individual health brings together compassion and cost effective based outcomes. This is a unique combination that requires creativity and working with individual patients to obtain the maximal health possible. In addition, my past experience in a supervisory role allows me to integrate medical training with excellent interpersonal skills. I have worked in hospital and nursing home settings and I am familiar with the level of commitment to health and well being your company requires. I feel confident that I will be a valuable member on any medical team.

Given the opportunity, I would like to speak with you to discuss how I might join your team and provide cost effective yet quality healthcare management. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
