I want to thank you for your support and insight during my transition from training to employment. Thanks to your advice, I start a new job on Tuesday! I'll be researching denied claims for XXXXX.
I would have continued slogging through Practicode getting discouraged if you hadn't encouraged me to start applying. Once I got going, I figured out which of the skills and proficiencies I already had that were found to be in demand and fine-tuned my resume with those. I did a little online research about getting the experience required by most entry-level coding jobs, and someone posted a video to the Practicoders FB group that led me to a great resource.
I continued applying for coding jobs but expanded my focus to jobs that wanted CPC knowledge in general. Those were the ones who called for interviews. My coding training qualified me for this job. Even though it's not a coding position, my goal of moving on to something else has been accomplished. Either this company will be amazing and I'll stay, or it will provide the experience I need to continue pursuing coding. Win-win!
As for Practicode, I've given up emailing them. I'm just taking notes on what I miss so I can refer back for the assessments (I still want my A removed). I'm saving a lot of time and frustration this way. Since my approach has changed, You've been a huge help in a way I didn't anticipate. Wishing you all the best!
Take good care,
Deresa C. is professional and fantastic when it comes to the medical field and knowledge about coding. So far, I’ve learned a great deal. I would recommend her to anyone who is studying for the CPC exam or anything in this regard. I am pleased with all the tips and personalized information is given to help with my specific needs. She is a great tutor!

Reference/ recommendation for Deresa Claybrook
As someone who has had the opportunity to work with Deresa Claybrook as a mentor, I can definitely say that I benefited from our relationship. Deresa approaches her role with a positive“can-do” attitude that is infectious. While she is full of energy and heart, Deresa is also direct and no-nonsense. Where I saw roadblocks, she saw possibilities. When I felt doubtful, she conveyed certainty. Deresa was generous in sharing everything from practical knowledge to article excerpts. Her ideas regarding my path forward were based on her broad knowledge of the field and yet individually tailored for me. I am grateful to Deresa for her investment in me; I was able to borrow from her confidence to tap into my own. And when done well, I believe mentoring gives both ways.

Took her online class and everything she needed you to do was very clear and easy to do. As long as you complete the weekly assignments on their due dates you'd be guaranteed a good grade. The requirements for an A was at a 93/100 since her class is that easy and open book. My advice for anyone taking her online class is to keep up with due dates!
