I graduated Duquesne University in May of 2018 with a B.S. in Health Management Systems (HMS) and a minor in Information Systems Management. Before college, I was not certain of my career path. I was very interested in business, but also wanted to pursue a career in healthcare. My degree in HMS is the perfect blend of the two. With diverse classes that focused on healthcare, business management and information systems, I graduated well prepared for a career in the ever-changing healthcare field.
My experience at Duquesne University taught me a variety of skills that helped me quickly advance in my career. I currently work at Gateway Health Plan as a Senior Project Manager and Chief of Staff to the Chief Marketing Officer. In these roles, I oversee all operational activities for the Marketing, Communications, and Community Engagement departments, collaborate with department leads to develop and execute a unified strategy, lead the marketing operations team, etc.
I am very thankful for the training and education I received at Duquesne University. The diversified classroom experiences knowledgeable professors and university recognition helped me get where I am today.
