A passionate entrepreneur, adept at managing all phases of a project from needs assessment to completion. Ms. Aubuchon began her career as a registered medical assistant (RMA) in 1986 while attending Wichita State University and studying Business Management.

Tonnie joined MDS of Kansas in 2014 as a medical transcriptionist with more than 18 years’ experience in the industry. She is seasoned in cardiology but has many other specialties, including orthopedic, oncology, etc. In addition to medical transcription experience, Tonnie has exceptional electronic health record (EHR) knowledge and is working in as many as 3-4 electronic systems daily. Because of her extensive experience, she has easily transitioned into quality assurance and editing, becoming a key “go-to” person for questions in medical transcription or electronic health record software systems. As new members join the team, she is able to help them transition with setup, program installations, and workflow.
