My name is Rebecca, but in seventh grade a friend said it was too long and decided Beka was better. It stuck. Nearly 13 years later, it still takes me a few seconds to realize someone calling out “Rebecca” is talking to me.
I am a recent graduate of Temple University’s Fox School of Business & Management, where I majored in Accounting and minored in Management Information Systems. During my time at Temple, I was an active member and officer of Temple University’s AIS chapter (Association for Information Systems), a rapidly growing and improving student professional organization, an experience I will not soon forget.
Now that I’ve graduated and spent a few months in the workforce, I am beginning to understand where I really belong. I am really interested in healthcare IT as well as consulting/business analysis. I am currently in the process of applying to graduate schools to pursue a masters degree in Biomedical Informatics. My mother is a nurse and my father is an engineer, so it seems quite appropriate that I would be so interested in pursuing a career in the Healthcare IT world – the best of both worlds, quite literally.
In addition to being a full-time student, I completed two internships within the Corporate IT department of University of Pennsylvania’s Health System (UPHS) while enrolled at Temple. I continue to work part-time as a private nanny to several families in Philadelphia, a continuously expanding network I initiated in 2004.
