What do I love about OHIMA? The community! Attending an OHIMA event is like coming home for a big family reunion.  Catching up with friends and colleagues, old and new, and seeing students who interned with me blossom into successful young professionals- that’s the BEST!  Immersing myself into the educational content and exchanging ideas and stories always leaves me feeling invigorated and ready to face the challenges of my work. Finally, the opportunity to be immersed into new services and technologies that vendors are showcasing, has me pulling out my notepad every time to make a shopping list for the upcoming budget year. I get all of this goodness because of OHIMA!

OHIMA membership has been integral in guiding my career path. Through the membership, I have been able to meet and learn from professionals in various work settings. This experience has given me opportunities to network and discuss ideas and related topics with those faced with the same challenges every day. OHIMA events have provided insightful education topics that you can take back to your desk and use right away! OHIMA has kept me engaged in the profession and the community!

Being a part of the HIM community is really special. We each have a common goal in mind and the ability for HIM professionals to come together to share resources and network creates a sense of purpose and sense of belonging. This is what drives me to learn more every day and put myself out there, volunteer, and see how I can contribute to the greater good of our profession.
