Joey Kennedy, Senior IT Specialist

Joey Kennedy joined the iSchool in July as senior IT specialist. In this position, he will supervise the Help Desk graduate assistants and provide course and general IT support for the School.

Kennedy previously worked at Carle Health as a lead tech and trainer at the service desk for the Health Alliance Medical Plans. He holds an associate of applied science degree in network administration and support from Parkland College.

In his free time, Kennedy enjoys spending time with his family—wife, three children (ages 2, 6, and 18), and dog—playing video games, tinkering with his home network, and listening to music.

"All my fellow colleagues whom I've met so far have been fantastic," he said. "I really look forward to getting to know everyone."
