Meet Rebecca Walkinshaw, Insurance Coorinator at Commerce Park Children’s Dentristry and Orthodontics, and YEP Board Member!
Employer: Commerce Park Children’s Dentistry &
Title: Insurance Coordinator
YEP: Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do:
RW: I have been with my office for the past 6 years. I have worked throughout the office, face to face, over the phone and now in the insurance and billing side of things. I really love my job and the people I work with. I spend most of the day collecting payments from insurance companies and speaking with them in order to get the patient the most benefits possible.
YEP: How did you find out about YEP and why did you want to get involved?
RW: My office manager, Allison, introduced me to YEP. Once I attended the information session, I realized that I wanted to be involved with the events that were going on. I think there are some great ideas and am excited to help get the YEP name out into the community.
YEP: Which YEP event has been your favorite so far?
RW: I really enjoy the board meetings actually. I think it is a great place to brainstorm as to new ideas and helping revise existing plans that have been done. I’m looking forward to the future events, especially getting involved with the mentoring program in Shelton schools.
YEP: Tell us more about you. What are your future aspirations?
RW: I was just accepted to SCSU grad program for my MBA in finance, which begins in September, so that is an exciting and nerve racking road that I will be going on. I always loved school and I am ready to further my education to be more well versed in the finance aspect of things.
YEP: Any fun facts or most interesting thing that’s ever happened to you?
RW: This will be my 3rd year riding in Smilow’s Closer to Free bike ride on September 9th. I will be riding 62.5 miles in memory of my mom Diane. I love that I can help raise money for a great cause and be able to enjoy the ride with family and friends cheering me on the whole way.
