Mrs. Ana Stephens

I have tought medical-related courses since 2004 when I started my career as an adult educator in the Martinez Business Training Center. As my involvement with the medical office and coding profession grew, I became a member of the “American Association of Professional Coders" (AAPC). In 2005, I served as a cofounder of the AAPC Martinez chapter in the role of President Elect/ Education Officer. After proctoring various certification tests and earning my CPC credential, I got the opportunity to start working for Pittsburg Adult Education in 2009. Here, I self-founded the Allied Medical Academy with a team of three medical instructors.

The goal of our program is to prepare our students for taking their certification exam and getting nationally certified so they can have more opportunities to grow in their professional life. Since 2009 we helped more than 50 students to earn their CPC from AAPC or CCA, or CCS-P AHIMA certification.

My class is a buffet of cultures races, genders and ages. We are always growing and teaching each other, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to learn from so many different, beautiful people.
