Why are you volunteering your time on the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board? Before I earned my medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco, completed an allergy and immunology fellowship and a master’s in health sciences at Johns Hopkins University and authored textbooks that have been utilized by physicians and medical students around the world, I was an Elizabethtown High School Panther. I identify strongly with this community and have been proud to raise my children here. I am intimately familiar with the importance of quality healthcare to a community and that is why serving on the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board is important to me.
As a medical professional and someone who serves on respected medical boards, what insight do you try to bring to the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board? When serving on the board, I try to bring my experience in medical education, health informatics, and medical practice management, as well as my experience working with a local medical practice. The board is filled with well-respected community members with a diverse array of insights and I’m proud to add my experience to the mix.
What does gratitude mean to you and what are you grateful for? I am grateful for my family, my supportive community, our patients at Central Allergy & Asthma and our region’s robust and growing medical sector.
