I am a registered nurse and I've been working in informatics for the last 12 years. The last eight have been spent implementing an EMR and other clinical systems in a long term care setting. Prior to a full time career in informatics, I worked in Hospice in positions ranging from staff nurse to Director. During my work in Hospice I had my first taste of working with the implementation of an EMR. I have done presentations on both the regional and national level, including NJHIMS, Delaware Valley Nursing Computer Network (DVNCN), annual software vendor User Group and AAHSA. Eileen is active in multiple committees of our chapter and chairs the Connections committee and is past Chair of the Chapter.
In my spare time my favorite things are gardening and playing with my two Standard Poodles.
