AHIMA ADVANTAGE 12
s REAL WORLD
Darren J. Joslin, Chief Service & Information Officer
My career at AHIMA started as an executive consultant in September 2017. That role helped me understand
the passion and commitment that AHIMA staff have for the organization and the HIM profession. This passion
and strong desire to move the organization forward was critical in making the decision to join the organization as
the Chief Service & Information Officer in May 2018. My responsibilities include Customer Service, Information
Technology, Decision Support, Security, and Facilities Management. My expertise includes servant leadership,
customer-centric focus, and several years of driving successful programs helping to transform organizations
leading to operational excellence. I can be reached at CSIO@ahima.org.
Cheryl D. Martin, MA, RHIA, Chief Knowledge Officer
I joined AHIMA as the Chief Knowledge Officer in January. My responsibilities include developing AHIMA’s
knowledge as an asset and leveraging opportunities to convert knowledge-driven resources into member-serving,
revenue-generating products and services. There is a strong focus on building strong communication channels
for both internal and external stakeholders as well as building and protecting AHIMA’s brand reputation. My
background is confirmation that HIM professionals are uniquely qualified for many roles throughout the healthcare
continuum. We need to define our own future and be willing to do the hard work necessary to take our place in that
future—wherever it may be. I can be reached at CKO@ahima.org.
Amy Mosser, MBA, Chief Transformation Officer
I joined AHIMA in November 2018. My role is to set the tone of AHIMA’s transformation, spur enthusiasm, and
challenge current wisdom in order to ensure that our strategic and financial results are delivered. I am known as
an imaginative strategist and resourceful problem solver whose skills are best leveraged when undergoing change.
I draw on 20 years of healthcare information industry experience in corporate, not-for-profit, and entrepreneurial
environments both in and outside of the US. Please contact me at CTO@ahima.org.
Leslie M. Stokes, MBA, Chief Product, Marketing & Sales Officer
I joined AHIMA in August 2018 and I am responsible for ensuring customers receive quality products that
add value in the marketplace and deliver upon the needs of both the profession and the healthcare ecosystem.
Specifically, I lead the Products, Marketing, Membership, Meetings, Exhibits, Editorial Services, and Sales teams.
Having been in healthcare for more than 25 years, I have had success in sales, international strategic marketing,
and product development at various organizations, both profit and non-profit in nature, so it gives me a great
perspective. I can be reached at CPMSO@ahima.org.
Keith D. Terry, CHPC, MBA, Interim Executive Director, AHIMA Foundation
I started in January, and I am responsible for running the AHIMA Foundation, a 501(c)( 3) philanthropic
affiliate of AHIMA. I have more than 25 years of global healthcare experience in corporate and not-for-profit
organizations, and I am certified in the principals of high performance where clarity and influence are vital
to getting outstanding results. Many AHIMA members are unaware of the important work being done at
the Foundation to help the HIM profession, so I’m committed to raising the profile of Foundation and better
communicating the value we are providing AHIMA and its members. I can be reached at ED@ahimafoundation.org.
Otis Usher, CPA, Chief Financial Officer
I joined AHIMA in October 2017 and I am charged with the financial stewardship of AHIMA to ensure our
accounting, financial policies and practices, and related internal controls meet regulatory and government
requirements. It is my duty to set the tone and expectation of financial accountability and understanding throughout
AHIMA to assure we prosper financially, now and in the future. In addition, I manage AHIMA’s human resource
function as we move forward with initiatives to strengthen employee engagement and build AHIMA’s reputation as
an employer of choice. I also oversee AHIMA’s legal services as we work to comply with legal and regulatory matters
and negotiate appropriate legal terms for contracts and services. I can be reached at CFO@ahima.org. v
