Success Story

Chrissi Warnick Health Claims Specialist / Medical Billing and Coding School


Chrissi Warnick
Health Claims Specialist (Medical Billing and Coding)
Campus: Harris School/Cherry Hill, NJ

Chrissi Warnick joined the Marine Corps shortly after high school and was on active duty for 15 years before she had to leave due to medical reasons. Once out, she found herself among the unskilled workforce and knew that returning to school was a way for her to obtain a new career. “I had no degree and I needed to learn a new trade,” she said.


After doing some research, Chrissi enrolled in the Health Claims Specialist program at the Harris School of Business in Cherry Hill, NJ. “The school was conveniently located and the course work was program specific and focused only on health claims,” she explained.
