About Jim Poissant

jim poissantName: Jim Poissant

How long have you been with VHA? 2.5 years

Tell us about yourself: I was raised in St. Cloud and attended St. John's University on a National Merit Scholarship. I graduated in 1992 with a BA in English, then returned to school in 2000 for Computer Science. I worked in corporate management for 11 years before burning out and moving to the private sector, working in a large vet hospital. I started a consulting firm, Veterinary Management Services, in 2003 and have worked exclusively with veterinary practices since that time. My company was purchased by VHA in 2015 and became the Business Services Division.

What's one interesting fact about you that very few know? I am a comic book nerd.

If you could have one super power, what would it be and why? I would have Dr. Manhattan's powers, as they include the ability to view time as static, meaning all space is static. He has viewed events "so tiny and so fast that they can barely be said to have occurred at all." Imagine viewing events at the quark/lepton/boson level! I told you I am a comic book nerd.

What's one thing you like about working at VHA? My team!
