Health Data Specialist
Valerie Smith joined Trenton Health Team in 2017 as the Health Data Specialist.
Prior to joining THT, she spent eight years at Lutheran Senior LIFE — a PACE program in Jersey City dedicated to caring for elderly participants and keeping them safely in the community.
During her last year with LSL, she volunteered to lead the effort to take the center from paper charts to an electronic health record system–and found her career sweet spot (technology + healthcare + serving underrepresented populations.).
In her role as Health Data Specialist with THT, Valerie is responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations of the Trenton Health Information Exchange (Trenton HIE). Her responsibilities encompass system administration, user training/support, auditing, etc.
Valerie moved to New Jersey in 2006 from her hometown of Dorchester, MA. She holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Northeastern University, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Boston University.
In her free time, she enjoys going to spas, baking, cycling, watching movies, traveling, inspirational writing and spending time with her family.
