What qualifies you for this position?
“As a healthcare professional, I am committed to a lifetime of study and academic excellence. This and being a parent gives me the desire for our community to provide everything we can to help each one of our children to go as far as their dreams, gifts and hard work can take them. I also formed and was the president of the original board that established Good Samaritan House. This required building a coalition of many different members. I believe it is essential to be able to work together. I have a heart for service to our community.”
