Jessica Kenyon

Jessica Kenyon joined the Brigham as senior administrative director of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine in the Department of Medicine on Jan. 22. In this role, Kenyon is responsible for the overall administration and operating results of the division. She reports to Samuel Goldhaber, MD, interim chief of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, and Kevin Giordano, executive director of the Department of Medicine.

A native of New England, Kenyon returns to Boston and the Longwood Medical Area after spending the last seven years working at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Wash., most recently working as director of Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery. Prior to that role, she served as manager of clinical Informatics at Virginia Mason.
