Math in Health Care and Technology

I will elucidate the career advantages and opportunities I've secured by leveraging my bachelor's degree in math. While I was still a student at UNL, majoring in math opened several doors for math-related part-time jobs; after graduation, a degree in math introduced me to a career in health care technology - first at Epic (a healthcare software company), and now with Stanford Health Care. I will explain the core functions of the work I do and how I get to apply my background in math on a daily basis. I will also provide the resources and processes I've used to find and secure positions with Epic and Stanford Health Care.
