Travis Paakki
The Office of Information Services has given me a unique opportunity: The ability to work in a field that I love, in a culture that encourages growth, alongside competent, compassionate, committed, and enthusiastic teams. OIS uses technology from small scale and single purpose to massive and complex to make a real impact on the lives of Oregonians. I am continually impressed by the innovative programs at the agencies we serve, the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Human Services. I am honored to have a seat at the table as we employ cloud-based technology to support our missions.
