Allow me to introduce myself
Hi there Dragonfly readers! My name is Mahria Lebow and I am the new Regional Technology Coordinator for the Pacific Northwest Region. I was lucky enough to meet some of you before I got started here at the Regional Advisory Council meeting a few weeks back.
This position brings me back from the Midwest to my favorite part of the country. I am a native Oregonian, going back six generations to Thomas Simpson Lebow who trekked on the Oregon Trail from Tennessee to Lane County, settling in 1850. I’m excited to again be sandwiched between the Pacific and the Cascades. I enjoy both camping and surfing, so my recreational activities will be much improved upon from my time in a landlocked state.
Prior to obtaining my Masters of Library and Information Science from the University of British Columbia, I had a wide range of experiences from providing technology support to clinical work (including phlebotomy!) at Oregon Health and Science University. I am coming most recently from the University of Iowa where I was acting as a Data Manager.
For those of you I had the opportunity to meet before, hello again. For everyone else, I hope I have a chance to meet you in person sometime soon. In the meanwhile, please feel free to contact me via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), skype (mahriatalksonhermac) or call me (206-221-3489). I am here to support you and your endeavors as they relate to technologies (old and new) and improving health information access, so please feel free to introduce yourself!
