These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, years of service, and the credentials they have provided in association with their Worldwide Branding membership.
Ms. McGann has five years of experience as a certified professional coder of The William W. Backus Hospital. Over the years, she has established herself as an expert in medical coding, as well as electronic medical records and health care management.

In addition, she assists with database and spreadsheets and coding for clinical level laboratories' diagnosis. She also reviews physician orders while referring to registration information to ensure that the correct codes have been entered for insurance purposes.
Ms. McGann previously worked in document management within the litigation support industry. She also has library and other community service work history. Ms. McGann's work ethic is impeccable. She cares about her work being done correctly and efficiently. As an apprentice, she works without monetary compensation in order to obtain her clinical hours. These traits all make her a standout professional. Her greatest career achievement was when she was working in a three-month temporary position that was extended to seven months because her work was outstanding. She deeply enjoys working with people and is looking forward to a career in coding to help ensure that the patients' documentation is accurate and that all records are up-to-date.
Looking back, Ms. McGann attributes her success to her dedication, desire to make a difference, and the support she received from industry mentors. She became involved in her profession because of her desire to make a difference in the lives of others, and a lifelong commitment to community service. The highlights of her career were graduating from Ridley-Lowell Business and Technical Institute and passing the CPC exam.
Ms. McGann completed postgraduate coursework in library and information science from the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College in 1995, and a bachelor's degree in history from Regis College in 1994. In addition to her degrees, she received a certification in health services management from DeVry University in 2013, and she became a medical billing and certified coding specialist through the Ridley-Lowell Business and Technical Institute in 2009.
