I have always worked In the medical Field since I was out of high school. I have experience in resolving unpaid medical bills since one of my previous jobs was just doing that. Another job I had was working with an eye specialist so I do know about glasses, contacts, optics, etc. I always get the best prices for my family and friends. My mom has diabetes so I always try to make sure she eats right. In fact I had taken nutrition classes just for her. I take ungoing courses because I enjoy learning about health.
