Director of Managed IT ServicesDAS Family Since 2016
Why are you in healthcare?
Security and Identity Management has become a core issue for healthcare providers today. When done incorrectly, a practice can be brought to its knees. I entered the healthcare world so I can help implement and maintain practice’s infrastructure the right way. With our help, providers can worry about taking care of their patients instead of worrying about the security of all their technologies.
What do you love most about your job?
Information Systems are sometimes hard to keep up with due to the fact that everyday technology outdates itself. This field and its constant changes are what keeps me engaged and on my toes.
Best career advice you’ve ever received?
One of my mentors gave me an aged bar of soap and a scorched candle. He told me these two items represented his goal and journey in becoming a better leader. When I asked him to elaborate, he explained that the bar of soap slowly sacrifices itself by giving its all for the team – so that they would be ready to succeed. The candle melts away to keep the flame going – if you give your team the proper tools and knowledge they will never experience uncertainty and ineptitude.
This very small, very old but very wise lesson is the basis of my leadership and could not imagine where my protégés and I would be without it.
Favorite charities or causes?
The Rape Crisis Center LV, Girls on the Run, and Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities.
You’re off the clock. Where can we find you?
I compete in as many Spartan Races as possible, enjoy designing and engineering new technologies, and spend time with my two beautiful daughters.
What are the top 3 items on your “bucket list”?
- 1. (Cannot wait) Walk both my daughters down the aisle
- 2. (One day will happen) Open up a two-story restaurant with a dessert bistro attached
- 3. (Pie in the sky) Own the New York Mets
Vanilla or Chocolate? Seriously.
Vanilla but it better be smothered in Marshmallow.
You get to have dinner with any three people to have ever lived. Who do you invite?
- Steve Prefontaine
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Leonardo da Vinci
“Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.” -Joseph Addison
