Business Systems Analyst Charlie Bryan is celebrating his 10 year anniversary here at LDCPH. Charlie joined LDCPH after the birth of his first baby, and has enjoyed having opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. One of his favorite memories was when his children were photographed to help promote the mission of the health department.
“They both looked at the camera with big smiles at just the right time,” Charlie said. “That photo ended up being made into a poster board and was used to promote our success with the adoption of tobacco-free parks policies. The photo now hangs at my home along the stairwell going up to their bedrooms.”
In the future, Charlie is looking forward to LDCPH’s efforts to address systemic racism to improve and advance health for all.
“The most valuable part of what I do here is listen for how I can help,” Charlie said. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve been called to serve others, and I find it rewarding to know that I’m useful and can make a difference to others in my daily work.”
Senior Analyst Dee Vernberg is celebrating her five year anniversary at LDCPH. Prior to joining LDCPH’s team, she worked as a senior epidemiologist at KDHE in Topeka. One of her favorite projects here at LDCPH was the Million Hearts project, which earned a Model Practice Award.
While Dee has enjoyed many things about working here, like staff development and learning new skills, but what she has enjoyed most is the ability to provide and present information in an easily digestible format for decision making.
Dee is excited to be continuing her time here at LDCPH as part of the Informatics team.
“We all have different strengths that seem to complement each other,” Dee said. “Working with such a talented team inspires me and helps me to make contributions that I hope will make a difference in the community.”
