Carrie Stein, CMT, has been a medical transcriptionist since 1977 and was certified through the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (formerly AAMT) in 1981.
Carrie originally went to college to become an RHIA (it was called RRA back then) but the only job opening when she graduated was in medical transcription. She continued to transcribe because she loved it! Her first job was at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. It was a great learning experience because it is a worldwide referral center. She is currently employed by Nuance and has been a facilitator for ed2go for the past 9 years.
Carrie has been active at the local and state levels of AHDI. She served as a Texas delegate to the AHDI House of Delegates in 2000-2001 and is the former President of the Alamo Chapter of AHDI in San Antonio, Texas.
Paula Kelley, CMT, has been an independent medical transcriptionist since 1992 and obtained her Certified Medical Transcriptionist (CMT) certification from the Association of Healthcare Documentation Integrity.
She has always done transcription as part of her jobs in medical offices, so she thought why not turn it into a career! She has experience in many specialties as well as general and family practice. She enjoys sharing her knowledge of transcription, in addition to mentoring and guiding new transcriptionists. Her experience as a small transcription business owner has given her the opportunity to supervise transcriptionists and encourage excellent work ethics and prioritizing, which are important to any medical transcription course and in general application.
