Swap ya!

Didi and I appear to be participating in an impromptu worker exchange program. A little more than a month ago I was working for The Echo Group, a behavioral healthcare software producer and Rapid Insight partner company. My decision to leave Echo opened up a couple of new positions, one of which Ms. Owen found too good to pass up. In turn, her leaving RI provided me with the opportunity I was looking for. Great how things work out sometimes!

As we’re all going to be working together, I should probably give you a quick tour of my professional history. Besides my time at Echo as a Project Manager/Facilitator (where I conceived and developed their latest product, the Visual Health Record), I’ve managed the customer service department of a local Internet service provider and have written Excel applications for a risk analysis consultant. Before relocating to New Hampshire, I was a Systems Engineer at Cape Canaveral designing and installing electronics to support rocket launches. 

No, that doesn’t make me a rocket scientist. But, fortunately, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to learn and use RI’s products. As you might expect, I’m shamelessly exploiting Didi in her final weeks learning the finer points of Analytics and Veera. I’m relieved at how intuitive the products are - I hope you feel the same way. 

Looking forward to meeting all of you in the coming New Year. Until then - Happy Holidays!
