I entered health care 38+ years ago with the desire to serve and care for others. This remains true today.

I have always had a drive to serve and care for people. It gives me great joy to be able to assist my co-workers and providers with the tools they need to care for our patients.
What is your favorite thing about working with patients?
It is providing them with the assurance that we are doing our very best for them.

The top priority is to deliver quality care to the best of our ability in a kind and caring manner.

I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, camping, and horseback riding.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone considering a career in healthcare, what would it be?
Follow your heart and the rest will come. If caring for others is what speaks to you, healthcare will not disappoint you. There are so many ways to serve and the talent of those who choose healthcare is deep and wide.
Every career has positives and negatives. If you do what you love, the positive will outweigh the negative.
What's the best advice you've received?
Sometimes things happen that are out of your control; how you respond to it is within your control. Look for the best in others, do your very best, and don’t lose your sense of humor.
“Keep smilin” (Cecil McCurry)
