"There must be consistent feedback loops in order to improve health of our community.  I believe through strong collaborative partnerships that public health issues can be identified and backed with quality data and addressed through increased knowledge, education related to prevention. "
Three words to describe me:
curious, independent, thorough
The best part of my job:
hearing from the community that an employee of the Health District was able to bring a moment of peace, knowledge, or comfort in this tumultuous time
Something that would surprise others about me:
I didn't want to go to college when I graduated high school.
