Katie Ek ’12
At JCU, Katie complemented her major in computer information systems with a minor in business. During her senior year, she completed a healthcare information technology internship at the Cleveland Clinic—an opportunity that itself was created by two JCU alumni who work at the Clinic. Following graduation, Katie first found employment as an IT analyst with a major real estate firm in Cleveland. She now works as a data scientist for Explorys, a large data analytics company founded by Cleveland Clinic doctors. Katie notes that her internship, which was established through JCU’s strong relationship with the Clinic, made the difference in helping her secure employment.
