What is your fondest memory from your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?
A couple of months into my first position, I was involved in the video transmission and taping of the opening of the time capsule from the original hospital. It was fascinating to watch history unfold and discover a rare part of the hospital's legacy.
What inspires you?
Our department's desire to protect D-H's patient data is paramount to us. We want to ensure that every DH patient's most sensitive data is secure, and they can trust us to protect their privacy.
What do you like best about your department?
All members of my office are constantly working to expand their knowledge about the latest information on security threats. We are focused on finding and implementing proactive solutions.
How has COVID-19 affected your work?
It hasn’t really affected my role; I have been working on-site since and remotely successfully.
