What motivates your desire to give back?
You have to give to receive. I enjoy sharing my time and talent to make the world, and especially my community, a better place to live.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
My husband used to say, “We want Mission Hospital to be the very best it can be so, when we need it, it will be there for us.” I want Mission Hospital to be able to provide the most advanced care.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
The board gives me the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills with others to build a better hospital for our community.
