Blythe is originally from Parkston, SD but currently live in Faulkton, SD
where she works for Faulkton Area Medical Center as the Human Resource &
Credentialing Manager. She started with the medical center as an Accounts
Receivable Clerk in the billing office in 2010 but has been Credentialing Manager
since 2012 and took on HR in 2013 as well. We MSPs always seem to
wear a lot of hats, don’t we?!
Blythe and her husband, Glenn, have four children (Logan, Tate, Emma &
Rylee). In the summer they spend a lot of their time on their acreage riding horses. In the
winter they spend their time chasing around to all their kids’ activities, in particular, youth
wrestling where Glenn helps coach. They love spending time with friends and family or having
simple nights at home with the kids’ watching movies and eating pizza.
Like she’s not busy enough between work and home, Blythe is currently pursuing her bachelor’s
degree in HR Management online through Western Governors University. This will
pair well with the associate’s degree in Business Administration and diploma in Health Services
from Southeast Tech that she currently holds. Way to go Blythe!
According to Blythe, one of the things she values from her membership with dakotAMSS is
the input she gets from other members on credentialing since she is a department of one
and her facility is still independent. They do utilize Avera Credentialing Verification services
though, which she states helps significantly.
Tonya works for National Medical Resources as a Credentialing Coordinator. She is located
in North Dakota. Tonya has been working in Medical Staff Services for 6 years, but has been in
healthcare since 1990. One of the biggest challenges she come across is the Provider payer
enrollment. I think we can all relate!
She is married with three kids. Her 23 year old is in Minot, her 20 year old is in Grand Forks at the University of North Dakota and her 14 year old is a freshman in high school. One of the traditions that has been passed on through the generations is farming and family time during the harvest. A favorite family vacation would be Easter in the Hills around Deadwood with her whole extended family.
If she could anything for a day she would spend it with her Dad, who died 22 years ago. If she could go back in time to change one thing she would find the cure for cancer.
