She has 18 years’ experience as general counsel, chief privacy officer, and data privacy subject matter expert. Most recently, Jennifer has concentrated on leveraging big data within the health care ecosystem. Jennifer is responsible, in part, for reviewing regulatory developments that impact insurers and health care practitioners, namely HIPAA and HITECH. Jennifer also ensures that the organization is HIPAA- and FTC-compliant. In 2014, she was one the original architects of the Florida Information Exchange.
