Why are you volunteering your time on the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board? Finding constructive ways to improve the community is a major goal for me personally, and supporting our regional healthcare systems is one of the best ways I can accomplish this goal.
What kind of insight and perspective do you try to provide to the board? When serving on the board, I do my best to bring the expertise in construction I’ve gained over the years to the scope of perspectives. Having someone with an insight in the inner workings of construction projects is important for the board, especially considering the development of the new Outpatient Medical Pavilion.
What does gratitude mean to you and what are you grateful for? I’m grateful that our community’s health is largely under the management of Baptist Health. Since acquiring our hospital in 2020, Baptist Health has proven to be a key asset for the community with so many new developments in the first two years. I’m grateful that my family and community has Baptist Health to rely on.
