Cierra Church


Billing Manager

Cierra is a certified medical coder, having graduated from the Medical Coding program at Anne Arundel Community College in May of 2014. She put her certification to work in the billing department of Anne Arundel Medical Center from 2016-2018. In March of 2018, Cierra became the executive assistant to the co-founder of The Musical Autist, which quickly exposed her to the amazing world of music therapy. Cierra has always had deep love for music.  She took dance lessons from age 4-17 and began teaching/choreographing at age 18.  Dance has completely shaped the way that Cierra feels and responds to music. She understands and has experienced firsthand that music is extremely healing and enables individuals to express themselves in powerful ways. Cierra also received vocal training while attending Anne Arundel Community College, which opened the doors to begin singing on the worship team at her church for the past 7 years.  With a deep love for music and a medical coding certification, the billing manager position for Annapolis Music Therapy seemed like the perfect fit for her.
