Why are you volunteering your time on the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board? I was born at Baptist Health Hardin and started my career there as well. It holds a special place in my heart and it has given me so much. I really view my role on the Foundation Board as a way to give something back.

As someone who serves in an administrative capacity at Baptist Health, what value do you see in Baptist Health Foundation Hardin? Baptist Health Foundation Hardin helps us to fulfill our mission. The Board consists of community leaders who take the time to offer meaningful support and through their efforts and through the efforts of our supporters, it makes a huge difference for Baptist Health Hardin.

What does gratitude mean to you and what are you grateful for? Foremost, I’m grateful for my fantastic and supportive family. I’m also grateful that I’ve been able to stay healthy during this pandemic and continue working amid all of its challenges. To that end, I’m grateful for the Baptist Health Foundation, which does so much good for the health of patients throughout the Commonwealth.
