I am a scientist, technologist, and an advocate for the power of well-designed health IT. In my career, I have worked in laboratories, manufacturing companies, network equipment vendors, and hospitals, so I bring a very well-rounded approach to today’s HIT challenges. Since 2008 I have focused mainly on connected health which is the use of Internet-enabled technology to enhance the relationship between patients and their caregivers. Areas of focus include remote patient monitoring for chronic disease management, telemedicine, interoperability, and shared decision-making strategies.
I am currently a Senior Director at HIMSS, the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, a global non-profit society with over 70,000 members working in healthcare and health IT. For more than ten years I have worked in not-for-profit entities from charitable hospitals to industry associations and membership organizations and have gained significant experience in the challenges unique to this sector.
B.S. – Environmental Science, Keene State College. Focus on freshwater ecology including eutrophication of ponds and lakes due to agricultural runoff and assessment of the cation exchange capacity of local watershed soils.
M.S. – Health and Medical Informatics, Brandeis University.
