Today's alumni spotlight is Amy Crouthamel (Carlson), a member of the BHS Class of 1991! 💫 Her typing teachers—Mrs. Thorngren, Mrs. J Duffy, and Ms. Duffelmeier—made a huge impact on her, and Swing Choir was her passion. She received an associate degree from DMACC and is now a medical coder at Boone County Hospital. “My job is somewhat 'behind the scenes,' but I have learned new skill sets to help patients, physicians, and the hospital provide medical necessity and proper payment due to medical diagnoses in the electronic health record,” she says. “I also work a PRN side job doing transcription for Doran Clinic on occasion. Medical transcription is my true love.” Thank you for sharing your story, Amy!
