Jennifer McNamara

Director, Education and Training

I started my Career in 2002 and has worked in many specialized areas of Coding including Orthopedics, Plastic Surgery, General Surgery, Ophthalmology, Podiatry and many more. My passion is Coding and Teaching Future Coders. I am very passionate about Recruiting and a huge advocate for helping New Coders find Employment. As the owner and CEO of Ozark Coding Alliance our goal is to provide quality education for New and Seasoned Coders with Exam Preparation, Specialty Conferences and Monthly Webinars. I have a great team of coders and billers that provide RCM services, Credentialing and Compliance through our team of experts.

I host a weekly podcast “Life as a Coder” discussing Health Information Management and how to succeed in the Business of Healthcare as well as tips for work life balance. It is available on many podcast stations and airs every Wednesday.

I have served as Education Officer for the Joplin MO AAPC Chapter previously and have written articles for AAPC Healthcare Business Monthly. I am a public speaker and have been a past speaker at AAPC Healthcon as well as many specialty conferences and events both Virtually and In person including Decision Health for Orthopedics.
