CIRCUITS OF SUCCESS
I am an Information Security Data Analyst at Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems. I analyze access requests and grant access to computer applications and systems for users at all of the member hospitals, affiliates, and non-affiliate members throughout the state.
I am learning everyday! As I continue to learn through courses and gain new skills, I am able to apply them in my work. We have a small department — part of a large Information Technology/Information Systems group — with great people that are dedicated to securing the system and working hard to keep up with the large demand. Information Systems Security is ever-changing and dynamic, and I am grateful to be part of it.
I grew up in a very large city, but have been in Maine for 24 years. I wouldn’t go back. I enjoy the seasons, the beautiful coastline, and the opportunities that I have here.
I have been in the medical field since shortly after I graduated high school. Having always been in secretarial or administrative assistant roles, I knew that it was time to go back to college and get a degree. As I started looking into what I should major in, a position at EMHS opened up in IS Security. I applied and started working there in August 2013. It all started to make sense, and I knew that the CIS program was for me. My advisor at the University of Maine at Augusta, Diana Kokoska, and my professor, Henry Felch, have been an incredible encouragement to me as I work, raise a family, and pursue my goals.
