Our next program of the series will feature Hilton Jackson, Reimbursement Manager, Neuronetics Inc. December 2. Hilton will explain his role, his ongoing responsibilities, and what a typical day looks like for him.
Hilton Jackson currently serves as Reimbursement Manager at Neuronetics, Inc.
A Louisiana native, Hilton grew up in a family of Military Veterans and working-class professionals. His early childhood was typical for a military family, and the Jackson family moved around before finally settling and placing roots.
As a child, Hilton spent lots of time outdoors hunting, fishing and simply being a kid. However, life threw several curve balls and when his mother became ill with no real explanation, Hilton’s childhood quickly became adulthood and his priorities shifted.
While in middle school, Hilton discovered his love of basketball. From a young age, his family impressed upon him the importance of education. Therefore, Hilton focused on school and furthering his education, and dedicated his free time to basketball.
Hilton attended a magnet school and had a very successful high school career. In addition to being an accomplished student, Hilton also excelled in sports. While in high school, Hilton learned how to weld and his secondary plan after a career in basketball was to become a hyperbaric-deep sea welder.
Hilton attended Louisiana Tech University and graduated with a degree in business management. Following his graduation, he entered the workforce, but like many young adults, was not sure what he wanted to do. He moved to Texas and within a week accepted an auditor’s position with Zale Corporation. After 6 years as an auditor, he choose to leave and accepted a billing position with Health Resources – a small company that specialized in treating chronically-ill patients.
Later on, a chance encounter with a former colleague at an airport baggage claim changed the course of his career. This former colleague mentioned that she had emailed Hilton several times about a career opportunity, but never heard back. A little while later, Hilton responded to the email, interviewed for the opportunity, and accepted a position as an RAC (Recovery Audit Contractor), covering accounts across the US and Caribbean. Fast forward through several different management positions in various genres of healthcare, Hilton landed in his current role at Neuronetics, Inc.
At the conclusion of Hilton's discussion, all attendees are encouraged to join in a Zoom post event conversation to foster connections with the students, speaker, moderator, and other industry professionals.
