Tim Yoon

IT Consultant, Accenture, Code for Sacramento

Tim Yoon loves using technology to help others with his background in civic tech and public health initiatives. He is an associative manager at the consulting firm Accenture in their Health & Public Service division out of their Sacramento, CA office. During his five years working with state government agency clients, his responsibilities have ranged from analyzing cybersecurity big data to developing automated quality assurance strategies.

Last year Tim was part of a team that won the Sacramento division of the National Day of Civic Hacking, a civic hackathon held nationwide dedicated to addressing local city issues. As a result, their team is currently implementing an online food pantry mapping tool for the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services organization. Tim’s efforts in this space led him to be invited as a panelist to the 2016 White House Open Data Innovation Summit, a conference that highlighted the Obama Administration’s work in actively providing U.S. government data to the public.

This year he will pursue his MBA at Duke University in their Health Sector Management program. He also attended undergraduate at Duke (’12) with a double major in economics and public policy. During that time he served as a Policy & Communications intern for the nonprofit Code for America, as Co-President for the Duke Public Speaking Club, and as a Technology Trainer for the Duke Office of Information Technology. Additionally, he partnered with the Durham County Health Department to create an experimental nutrition program at the Durham Nativity Middle School.

Tim can often be found performing Backstreet Boys at open mics and classic hymns at his local church. He loves cheering on his favorite basketball teams, though his “skills” on the basketball court are not so cheer-worthy. He has lived in seven states across the continental U.S. with the majority of his time spent in Northern California.
