CodingCertification.Org is owned and managed by Laureen Jandroep, CPC, CPC-I who is also Sr. Instructor. The mission of CodingCertification.Org is to help new and seasoned coders with their certification education – first to get certified then to maintain certification.
This is done via articles, videos and practice questions many of which are freely available through out the site. Some are paid products like our popular Coding Certification Review Blitz and CEU On Demand Classes and Physician Based Coding Course. We have a new discussion board where aspiring coders can ask their questions about getting certified and one where certified coders can discuss ways they’ve maintained their CEUs for their respective credential.

Alicia has been working with medical coding for almost seven years. She first learned about medical coding while working in a medical records department at a resort town hospital near where she was raised. Through the years she has held several jobs in the medical field from, CNA, EMT, Pharmacy technician and Medial Records Abstractor and Analyst. Outside of the medical field she has worked as a Real Estate agent, and owned her own on-line retail business. The medical field has always been where she felt the most comfortable.
After high school Alicia was accepted into a nursing program at a local university in Missouri. She started the program but did not complete it due to a sudden illness. During that time she got married and started a family. With intentions to always go back and finish her nursing degree she got the opportunity to work in medical coding instead. She joined the AAPC and became certified as a CPC® in 2011.
Presently Alicia lives in West Texas and is married with six children. She is working towards her Masters in Health Care Administration with an emphasis on education. She is an instructor at a private college teaching medical coding and billing and medical law and ethics. Having taken many on-line classes through the years to complete her degree she feels very comfortable with both face to face and on-line learning. Alicia will tell you that not only does she love medical coding but she has a passion for teaching it.
