What Brought Me Here
I suppose the need to put food on the table and roof overhead was what brought me to working on the HMIS Admin team for N.C. in 2007. I worked in networking and database administration prior to that and was looking for a change that was more compatible with the demands of parenthood than fixing servers at 3:00 am. The more important question is, “Why did I stay?” I stayed because the process of using data to help solve real peoples’ very real problems was the biggest and most interesting puzzle that I’ve ever encountered. I moved from a staff admin role to a consulting role in 2014.
Providing Value By
I provide reporting, data analysis, data quality improvement, and administrative support assistance to HMIS implementations across the country. I consider each data point a part of the story of a real person having one of the worst moments of their life.
We overlook just how large a role we all play–and by ‘we’ I mean society–in determining who makes it and who doesn’t. – Malcolm Gladwell
So what is this radical idea? That most people, deep down, are pretty decent. – Rutger Bregman
You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say. – Martin Luther
Search engines, YouTube, anything that can answer ”how to…” today it’s building a potting bench. Yesterday, it was how to calculate a P-value. My browser history reflects a mess of HMIS implementations, projects, reading, and shopping to complete projects.
