I live in Long Island City in New York and completed my undergraduate education at Stony Brook University. I love spending time with friends and family, making others laugh and trying not to have a heart attack when going for a run.
Why did you decide to earn your Master of Science (M.S.) in Management of Health Informatics and Analytics?
The M.S. in Management of Health Informatics and Analytics is a multidisciplinary degree that combines the principles of information science and technology and highlights the dynamics manifested between the two areas. Through this program, my goal is to become an information management professional who can proficiently perform designated responsibilities with clinicians and health care service administrators and establish clear, efficient health information strategies for a health care organization.
Why did you decide to pursue the degree with HealthInformatics@GW?
Joining the Milken Institute School of Public Health community will provide me with extensive exposure to a domain of professional knowledge, and I will be able to satisfy my desire of acquiring comprehensive knowledge on Information Technology (IT) and how it relates to health care. GW’s online M.S. in Management of Health Informatics and Analytics program is uniquely placed at the junction of the health care industry and IT. It is my belief that the George Washington University is the most appropriate academic setting to assist me in achieving my goal of contributing to human welfare by converting a fragmented system into an informed network of health care providers and service consumers.

Technological advancements have always grabbed my attention from a very young age. I began to notice how computers function and how different parts are interlinked. My passion for exploring the area of computer science is driven by my intellectual interest and my work experiences at different health care organizations. I believe that current changes in the health care field have increased the need to perform in ways that were formerly impossible, thus making our need for advancement even greater. Conversely, IT professionals need to continuously seek further education to be successful in health informatics.
