A Q&A with Tasha Bell, who holds 5 HFMA certifications
Where do you work, and what is your position?
I am currently a project manager in the health- care practice of RSM US LLP, the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market.
How long have you been an HFMA member?
I have been a member for less than one year.
Which HFMA certifications did you earn?
I have earned five certifications: CRCR, CHFP, CSPPM, CSMC and CSBI.
What made you want to do so many?
I felt like the certification options provided a great opportunity to validate my existing knowledge base. Having been in healthcare and consulting for 20+ years, I have had amazing opportunities to work across the continuum of healthcare and operations, gaining knowledge, practice, understanding and skill. In consulting, I not only work as a project manager, but also serve as a healthcare operations subject matter expert. These skills can be called upon for any assignment.
What do you hope to accomplish with the knowledge you’ve gained from our certification programs? Have you been able to use that knowledge so far?
I currently use these skills on a day-to-day basis in my field. Hopefully, these certifications will provide clients with additional confidence in my skills and abilities, and the security of knowing that they are working with a knowledgeable and industry-validated professional.
What are your hobbies?
Leisure traveling and shoe shopping!
What’s the last TV show you binged?
I don’t have a TV; I love books!
If you could take a year off to travel the world, where would you go, and what would you do?
I’d travel the continents of Africa, Europe and Australia!
