Senior information technology leader with over 15 years experience managing and directing multi-million dollar capital and operational investments within federal and academic environments. Expertise in building and refining programs and enterprise-wide initiatives through collaborative and evidence-based techniques. Experience with reaching consensus in diverse environments and creating reliable, secure, and intuitive informatics and information technology solutions.

At Emory, I have built the new Division for Research and Health Sciences Information Technology Department from scratch to a $3.4M, 34 FTE department engaged in working with research investigators to support their research through the use of information technology. I am co-program director of the Biomedical Informatics Program (BIP), part of Emory’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), that builds key infrastructure for clinical and translational science.

As part of the leadership team of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Public Health Informatics (NCPHI), I assisted in the creation and direction setting of CDC’s new Informatics Center. NCPHI consisted of 426 staff in 12 geographically dispersed locations and a $138M budget. Enacted decisions that impacted budget, personnel, and mission objectives; directed the CDC Enterprise Architecture Program and the NCPHI Program Management Office; developed and maintained capital investment business plans; and developed and negotiated multi-year contracts totaling over $100M.
