2017 - 2018 Featured Students in HIIM

Undergraduate Featured Student:  Michelle Bartlett

michelle bartlett

My name is Michelle Bartlett and I am from Saline, Louisiana. Growing up, I always wanted to attend Louisiana Tech University because it had a beautiful campus, a great atmosphere, and it was close to home. After graduating from high school and being accepted to Louisiana Tech, I decided to major in nursing. A year into working towards a nursing degree, I decided to change my major. While looking on Tech’s website for other majors they offered, I came across Health Informatics and Information Management. I did more research and the many career paths and job opportunities are what made me choose to pursue my HIIM degree. Everyone involved in the Department of HIIM are so welcoming and knowledgeable, as well as supportive. Anytime I need help or advice about something I know my HIIM professors will be there. When I graduate and obtain my RHIA credential, I plan on gaining more work experience in the healthcare industry. Although I am not exactly sure what I want to do, I am interested in pursuing a job as a Data Integrity Analyst or an Informatics Researcher, and I am also interested in the field of cancer registry management.

Graduate Featured Student  Robynetta Hargrave

My name is Robynetta Hargrave. I am currently traveling in the state 
of California working as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist. However, my home will always be in the New Orleans area of Louisiana. Working in California has allowed me to help improve patient care by providing in  depth laboratory knowledge of different computer information systems  and clinical skills.  When I am not working or studying, I enjoy  devoting my time to my other passion by coaching girls’ basketball.  While traveling, I realized I wanted to further my education by  pursuing a Masters in Health Information Management. I felt this area  of study would allow me to better fulfill my position in assisting each hospital’s laboratory, especially hospitals in rural areas with no designated employee assigned to laboratory information systems. I  am excited that I choose to study at Louisiana Tech University,  because I now have the tools to complete my mission of providing the  best service to patients from the laboratory. As graduation is slowly  approaching, I want to thank my teachers for this opportunity and for  allowing me to grow in this field. Being a bulldog is one of the best decisions I have made thus far!
