Jamison Kies considers her work with Johns Hopkins Medicine colleagues to address COVID-19 vaccine inequities her most significant professional achievement.
Kies, senior administrative manager of Johns Hopkins Medicine’s General Internal Medicine Division, wrote, “The ability to marry the technical know-how of our scheduling system with our patients’ needs was impactful in our efforts for equitable vaccine distribution.”
She earned her Master of Health Administration from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2018, received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2015, and managed clinical operations and ambulatory services for the hospital system.
“Approach and attitude are everything.” An open mind and a willingness to appreciate different perspectives have helped her create change. “I believe that change most often doesn’t happen in broad strokes and sweeping upheavals but rather through small, incremental adjustments aimed at alignment toward the overall goal.”
Kies mentors graduate students at the Bloomberg School, helping them set career objectives. She is treasurer of the Junior League of Baltimore, social media chair of Epsilon Xi Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega, national lifetime engagement specialist of Alpha Chi Omega, and chapter president of Pi Omega Pi Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega.
