Consultant Courtney Burum’s Virtual World

I work at the Federal Electronic Health Record Modernization (FEHRM) office as a correspondence analyst, facilitating correspondence to be reviewed across different FEHRM workstreams, as well as between the Veterans Affairs Administration and the Department of Defense. I also support FEHRM’s SharePoint team by providing trainings on key functions and adding new users.

Joining MPS in a remote environment has been a unique experience because I received my orientation and met my co-workers – both at MPS and FEHRM – completely virtually. Still, I appreciate the flexibility working remotely has given me. For instance, I was able to work from Massachusetts for a few weeks so I could be there when my niece was born during the summer.  

In my free time, I have been reading and playing video games, particularly the Nintendo Switch game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I also recently started an online course on Machine Learning.
