Alumni Success

Assistant Professor, Teaches and Coordinates Internships for Students in the Health Information Management Program

Sabine Simmons
2015, Doctor of Education, Organizational Leadership, Argosy University, Online Programs
Assistant Professor, Alabama State University

“The information I learned [in the program was] key to my current position and will [prepare] me to successfully navigate through the upper levels of education administration and organizational leadership.”

Sabine Simmons is an assistant professor at Alabama State University. She teaches a wide range of courses within the curriculum and participates in faculty development activities, student advisement, curriculum updates, student recruitment, and planning.  Sabine also gives interdisciplinary lectures for allied healthcare students—and utilizes Blackboard LMS to facilitate online and traditional instruction. She helps to secure affiliation agreements with accredited healthcare institutions for clinical placement and practicum experiences for students in the school’s Health Information Management program. 

Additionally, she meets with clinical instructors to gain insight on improving outcomes of the internship process and experience—while assessing the quality and success of the internship program. She started her career working as an instructor in health information management. “At that time, I had a Master’s [degree]. Once I realized that it was necessary to further my education in order to be promoted in the field of academia, I began [pursuing a] Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership because of the flexible and supportive environment at Argosy University, Online Programs,” she says.

Her professional accomplishments include being awarded the "Outstanding New Professional" award from the Alabama Association of Health Information Management (AAHIM) in 2011. She’s also been invited to co-author a text book on ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases) coding by Paradigm Publishing, which is set for release in December of 2017. Sabine is also a member of the Parent Teacher Association at E. D. Nixon Elementary School, serves as a faculty senate member at Alabama State University, and as the student relations committee chair on the AAHIM board. “I am also a volunteer mentor in the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).”

She recommends that current students absorb what they’re learning—“do not commit it to your short term memory [just] to pass a class. Integrate your learning into your life and future endeavors.” Sabine adds that in school, quantitative statistics class provided a real challenge to her. “Although I did fail the first time, I worked closely with my professor to overcome the challenge.” 

In 2015, Sabine earned a Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership from Argosy University, Online Programs. She chose to pursue the degree because of the school’s supportive environment—and she knew that she needed a Doctor level degree to advance in her occupation. “The admissions and financial aid representative made many processes go smoothly, and there was a ground campus nearby so that I could participate in graduation.”

She adds that learning online allowed her to conveniently earn the degree, while gaining “volumes of content related to leading an organization, including conflict management and change management. The information I learned was key to my current position and will [allow] me to successfully navigate through the levels of education administration.” With her degree, she’s now qualified to teach graduate courses as an adjunct at other Universities. 

In addition to the knowledge gained at Argosy University, Online Programs, Sabine says that her instructors made lasting impacts upon her. “My dissertation chair and first writing professor [really made a difference]. The professor of my first writing course taught me the skills I needed to write scholarly material. My dissertation chair help me to utilize this skill and guided me through one of the toughest processes I have ever encountered (the dissertation process).”
