Why I'm running

After being rushed to Bay Area hospital for an emergency delivery that was life-threatening for both myself and my baby, I was amazed by the community of healthcare professionals who really cared about us. It was the scariest and most difficult experience of my life, yet I was surrounded by people who were both professional and empathetic. 


I’m running for the Board to bring my years of managerial experience and education in finance and business, as well as my personal life-saving experience at Bay Area Hospital, to create a thriving community of service and support.

Ensuring Bay Area Hospital is for the community, by the community.

Unlike most hospitals in Oregon, Bay Area Hospital is a public hospital intended to truly serve our local community. I want to ensure the community feels involved and supported by their hospital. 

Fostering a supportive environment for staff to best serve patients.

By making sure staff members have all the tools and resources needed to serve patients, we can provide the best quality experience for those like myself who rely on their support and service.

Bringing financial acumen to ensure long-term success.

With my experience in finance and business, I’m coming equipped with a skill set that will contribute to the ongoing success of our hospital and our ability to increase community health.
