The widespread use of electronic health records in the medical industry is expected to lead to an increase in demand for medical scribes who can manage and organize the information.

Medical Scribe / Medical Office Management Program Instructor
Crissy’s career in healthcare began at the age of 21 after completing the North Mississippi Medical Center’s Medical Transcription program from Itawamba Community College on June 29, 2000. Crissy worked as a Medical Transcriptionist (now called Healthcare Documentation Specialist) until 2012. It was at that point Crissy discovered and made the transition into the exciting world of Medical Scribe. This new journey took Crissy from sitting at home for 12 years listening to doctors dictate to actually moving into the exam room alongside the clinician during the patient encounter. In Crissy’s own words “I was mesmerized. Where had this been all my life?”
Crissy moved quickly from scribing to training and then to managing the scribe program at her local hospital and before she knew it, she had worked her way into upper management. Following this Crissy, had the opportunity to implement and manage several scribe programs from Maryland to Miami. In 2015, the company was acquired by a larger scribe company and Crissy made the next transition into office administration. Crissy spent the next five years in office administration.
In March 2020, Crissy joined AHDPG. She brings a unique skill set to our team and the students. She has worked as an office manager dealing with the various aspects of regulations, billing & coding and can attest to how documentation ties it all together!
Crissy currently resides in Northeast Mississippi with her husband and three sons.
