BOLD SOLUTION: Jackie joined the Lake County Public Health Agency as Director of Environmental Health in September 2012 and built from scratch several rural agency environmental programs, including retail food, schools and child care centers, OWTS, radon waste tire, and well water testing.
My goals have always been to build community partnerships, to lead government policy at the local, state, and federal levels to empower people to take responsibility for being good stewards of public and natural resources, while building and strengthening Colorado’s resiliency to public health, environmental health, natural and manmade hazards and disasters.
