As VP and Chief Development Officer, what value can you say Baptist Health Foundation Hardin has on regional healthcare? Baptist Health Foundation Hardin’s primary goal is to help our physicians, staff and other care providers help patients. Through our funding, we provide new facilities, technology equipment and training that enhance Baptist Health Hardin’s mission of demonstrating the love of Christ by providing and coordinating care and improving health in our communities.

How would you describe the working relationship of the board and the varying insights they bring to the table? The board encompasses not only medical professionals and leaders at Baptist Health, but also esteemed community members hailing from a wide range of industries and communities. The diversity of the board not only results in fresh perspectives and insights, but it also results in a team of well-respected ambassadors for Baptist Health Hardin’s mission who spread the word about our first-rate healthcare system to stakeholders throughout our 10-county service region.

What does gratitude mean to you and what are you grateful for? When I think about the things that make me grateful, what comes to mind is my family, our generous community and our tremendous healthcare system. It’s an honor and privilege to lead an organization that supports the things that fill me with gratitude.
