What motivates your desire to give back?
I’m a breast cancer survivor. Having a community hospital in our backyard that gives us access to some of the best care and doctors in the U.S. means a lot to me.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
St. Joseph Hospital stands out because of its commitment to serve all patients with compassion and dedication. The Sisters of St. Joseph’s value system is felt throughout the walls of the hospital and people who work there.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
I’m passionate about people and having an opportunity to serve and work alongside them, all united to achieve the mission of the hospital.
