Jenny Tsao is currently the Chief Data & Software Officer at the F-35 Lightning Strike II Joint Program Office, where she leads data and analytic efforts and coordinates air system software lifecycle planning, execution, and sustainment. She was the Chief Data Officer at the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) coordinating data governance and providing a centralized data and analytic service capability to the Navy Medicine enterprise, to include overseeing key tools and dashboard development for COVID-19 reporting for the Department of the Navy. She served as a Department of Defense Legislative Fellow in the U.S. Senate in 2019.

Prior to her pivot to overseeing data and analytics, Ms. Tsao had experience in logistics, manufacturing, and health systems environments. At BUMED as a Senior Health Systems Engineer she worked on various initiatives to improve health care delivery with providers, to include the integration of technology to complement the patient experience in efforts. She helped establish the Corpsman Trauma Training program to integrate corpsmen into civilian trauma hospitals to increase readiness. Ms. Tsao also led the implementation of a barcode-enabled Kanban inventory management system at Navy medical treatment facilities internationally. Her previous role as Operations Industrial Engineer in the engineering and network analytics groups at the U.S. Postal Service has provided her with experience in performance improvement, data analytics, and enterprise-wide project implementation. 

Ms. Tsao has a Bachelor’s Degree in Systems Engineering and Design (previously General Engineering) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and her M.S. in Health Care Management at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.
