How long have you been at HIMSS?

I have been with HIMSS 16 years.

How do you support our mission statement?

The people HIMSS serves have a necessary and worthwhile responsibility to transform health—and we share that responsibility with them. I am fortunate to lead a team whose work is to empower our audiences with information about the opportunities available to learn about, act on and implement HIMSS resources that help them in this massive endeavor.

How do you know your work at HIMSS makes a difference?

We’ve increased, and continue to do so, the visibility of the HIMSS brand, and we’ve positioned HIMSS as a global voice, advisor and thought leader of health transformation through health information and technology, with a unique breadth and depth of expertise and capabilities to advance the quality, safety and efficiency of health, care and outcomes. During my 16 years, I have seen tremendous growth in membership, global conference and other event attendance and also in networking, partnerships, advocacy and audience involvement in HIMSS initiative activities.

What’s one thing you wish everyone knew about the work you do at HIMSS?

I wish everyone knew how dedicated my team is to their work and how seriously they take the responsibility they are charged with. They are all very passionate about how HIMSS is perceived in the world!
