Here are just a few comments from students that have done their PPE rotation at Tomah Health with Miranda Riffle.

“Working with Miranda Riffle during my Professional Practice Experience was wonderful. She is passionate about her job and teaching others.  Her employees said endless good things about her and Tomah Health.”

“Miranda is very organized and keeps up on all the new changes in the health information world and she communicates these changes to her staff.”

“She encourages others to do their best and to try things that might be a little scary for them. In the future, I hope to have the privilege to work for someone as nice as Miranda when I start my career in Health Information.”

Miranda Riffle is an RHIT, AHIMA-WHIMA Member, and the Director of Health Information Services at Tomah Health in Tomah, Wisconsin.
