Cortney Howell is our newest addition to the Reimbursement Team. She could not have come at a better time–her 18 years of infusion reimbursement experience will prove invaluable to our ever-growing business.
Cortney’s childhood was full of motion and movement. She was born in New Orleans, but her father’s law enforcement work moved the family to Memphis, Vancouver BC, and finally…Blaine, WA. She graduated high school as a Borderite in 1997 and then took to the road, ending up in Kansas City working for a home health company. She liked the work, and proved quite adept, so when she came back to the Northwest after a few years, she landed a job with Option Care in their Bellingham location.
She continued to develop her skills within the industry, and was ultimately offered the reimbursement manager position in the Kennewick, WA office. She spent four years there, but decided to come back to Marysville to be closer to family. She remained at Option Care until early 2018, and has now begun her next career phase with us at Infusion Solutions. Yay! Over the past 20 years, Cortney has done just about all there is to do in infusion/home DME reimbursement, and we are excited to tap into her vast experience. She is a self-starter, an industrious worker, and a real pleasure to have in the office.
Outside of work, Cortney enjoys gardening, scrapbooking, music, and travel. She is married with two boys, ages 22 and 11. The older boy stands an impressive 6’7” tall, lives locally, and works for Coke. The younger boy is a sports fan and enjoys playing lacrosse the most. The family is rounded out by their two dogs, Cash and Willow.
Cortney’s favorite concert of all time is the Garth Brooks show she saw last year, but she is going to Pearl Jam in the very near future…so maybe her love of grunge will supplant her love of Garth.
