I’m a Technical Operations Associate! I help our patients and practitioners be successful, and help our development team make new features.
- When did you begin your role at Chiron?
A little over a year ago.

Well, I also handle everyone’s birthdays. It’s important to get people cookies on their birthdays, for morale.
- What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
Getting to know all kinds of people, especially our practitioners.
- Before working here, what was your most unique or interesting job?
I worked in the music festival industry for a lot of years, and flew around the country sitting in box offices and not getting to watch music. It was fun!
- What’s your favorite book and/or movie?
My favorite book is Accelerando by Charles Stross, a coming of age cyberpunk story that heavily inspired me in my career. My favorite movie is True Stories, the only movie by the band The Talking Heads, and John Goodman sings in it. It is great.
- What do you like to do outside of work?
Play a lot of video games, but I also do stand-up comedy. Those are my two modes!
- What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
I couldn’t live without stand-up comedy, it’s like a cheaper version of therapy, and I get to make people laugh.
- What’s your hidden talent?
I’m a really good cook! My favorite kind of food is Middle Eastern, and I have an unreasonable number of spices at home.
- If you had all the time in the world, what’s one topic you would like to become an expert in?
Specialization is death! Knowing one thing really well is just one step from not knowing anything at all. So, I’ll just say “everything”.
