Current Role – Program Director for the University of Wisconsin-Extended Campus with oversite of three healthcare programs...MS-HCA, BS-Nursing (Linc) and BS-HIMT.
I began my career in Health Information and Informatics Management at Hilton Head Regional Hospital in Hilton Head, SC. After a short time as a department clerk, I moved onto become the HIM Manager and EHR System Administrator. I have been part of multiple successful system implementations of various sizes where I have served numerous roles ranging from Project Manager to physician trainer. A successful implementation requires the ability to assess current processes and strategically implement new ones based on performance improvement measures. I have also served as HIIM Director, HIM Director, Director of IT and Account Manager at facilities ranging from 71 – 650 beds.
My focus now is on mentoring and career development opportunities for students and early careerists.I earned my Masters in HIIM from the College of St. Scholastica.
