It’s 2018 and although it’s a new year, we want to continue with last year’s quest of allowing folks a chance to get to know our team members. Introducing, Amie McDaniel – we are very thankful that Amie took the time to answer a few questions about her role at HCP and herself.
What is your role at HCP? Billing specialist
What aspect of your job do you enjoy the most? What I enjoy the most is learning more and more every day to help better myself so that I can do my job with the best quality.
What piece of advice would you give to a new client? I would give them this quote: “Every job is a self-portrait of the person who does it. So Autograph your work with excellence!” –Jessica Guidobon
Do you have a favorite quote? I have 2 favorite quotes: “Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful.” “When the world says give up, hope whispers try one more time.” –both unknown
If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day? No one else but myself. Sure I’m not perfect or someone with a lot of power or money. But there is no one I’d rather be than to just be myself. Maybe myself as a Mermaid if they were real. To have that gorgeous tail to swim with the beautiful sea creatures and see the wonders of the sea (without all the gear you can use now) and change back to human whenever I want! Now that would be a perfect ME! LOL
