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.
