Currently, I am an Information Security Analyst, embedded in the IS Security Group at Tufts Health Plan. As a Security Analyst at Tufts Health Plan, my day to day duties are working with different teams throughout Tufts Health Plan to ensure projects strictly adhere to Tufts Health Plan corporate information security policies. It is critical that our health care information is never put in harm’s way; it is our team’s mission as well as all Tufts Health Plan employees to safeguard that information. The most important aspect of my job is being able to communicate effectively with not only my team, but other teams throughout the organization. Being able to work as a team to achieve goals is extremely important. This is actually my favorite part about working at Tufts Health Plan. Working on projects in teams and building camaraderie is something I didn’t expect, and love doing. From the top down in the Security Group, we work extremely well with each other drawing on our individual skills and talents to solve problems and achieve our goals.
I grew up in Hopedale, Massachusetts, and graduated from Hopedale High School in 2004 and then Bridgewater State College in 2009. After college I wanted to get into coaching sports, so I went back to Hopedale High School and coached baseball and basketball. It was my life dream to join the military, so in 2012 I made a career change, and decided to chase my dream. I joined the United States Army and chose the military occupational specialty of Cryptologic Network Warfare Specialist, and later became a Cyber Operations Specialist. From there, I specialized in Digital Network Exploitation, focusing on anti-terrorism objectives.
When my contract expired, my wife and kids were ready to move to Cape Cod. My wife Jennifer and I have been married for three years; we have two kids, Travis (7), and Savannah (16 months). We also have 2 dogs, Maverick and Daisy, as well as two cats, Lyla and Sam. We currently live in Brewster after relocating from Augusta, Georgia.
