I find myself at the intersection of people, process, and technology, connecting the three to help Johns Hopkins achieve its missions. I take pride in delivering technology solutions to solve complex problems in higher education and in healthcare.
As the Deputy CIO, I have the pleasure of partnering with our enterprise CIO in developing and leading strategy, implementation, and operations relating to enterprise information systems and services, with a specific emphasis on service excellence. I am responsible for growing and cultivating positive and mutually beneficial relationships between IT and university constituencies-- including distributed IT units, faculty, students, and administrators-- as well as other institutions, industries, partners, and vendors.
With responsibility for enterprise applications for the Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins Health System, my application portfolio includes our enterprise-wide ERP (SAP), our business intelligence and analytics solutions, our customer relationship management solutions, the university's student information and related administrative systems, and a collection of systems and services that support teaching, learning, and research.
I am a member of the Board of Directors for Americas' SAP Users' Group (ASUG) and the Maryland Education Enterprise Consortium (MEEC). I actively participate in CIO-level advisory councils for such companies as SAP and Salesforce and industry groups such as Educause.
I am presently leading the development of facultyforce, an innovative platform for research collaboration built on Salesforce and funded by a grant from the Salesforce Foundation. I am proud to be a finalist for a 2015 Constellation Research SuperNova Award based on this work.
My capacity for life-long learning was cultivated at Johns Hopkins, where I earned a BS in Computer Science, with a concentration in medical computing and computer-assisted surgery, and where I later earned an MBA with a concentration in marketing. I have had the good fortune to work for Goldman Sachs, for the Yale Center for Medical Informatics in the School of Medicine at Yale University, and in e-business consulting.
