My professional network alerted me to opportunities at CVS Health. I would probably never have considered the company, but a close friend encouraged me to apply for my current position and opened a door or two to get me that first interview. After that, it was up to me to execute. But we all need that first invite to the game.
The military was a calling and a family and I loved all 26 years. I wanted to find a company that could provide a similar atmosphere. I interviewed with several companies before accepting this position. Most were interested in my personal rolodex and wanted me to sell their product to the Air Force. CVS Health asked me to come onboard and help them improve their team and pursue their purpose, which is helping people on their path to better health. Relating IT to that purpose can be confusing, but in disaster recovery, we plan and prepare for the worst so that a crisis does not impact our patients and customers.
