I heart Arizona! I am a third-generation Arizonan who is happiest when I am with family and friends under the desert sky (maybe a little less happy in July and August).
When I’m not working as a lawyer at Mayo Clinic, hanging out with my near-perfect husband, or reading a book, I travel. There are so many cool places to see and so little time.
I’ve been a Mountain Park board member since 2017. I was recruited by a colleague who I respect and admire. He spoke highly of Mountain Park’s mission and values, which confirmed what I had heard from my Mayo Clinic colleagues.
The opportunity to serve on the board came at a time when affordable healthcare in the U.S. was under attack, and I wanted to do something — which brings me to my passion. I have been a healthcare attorney for over 20 years, and I have seen our healthcare system from many angles – as a business advisor, a lawyer, a family member of a patient, and a patient myself.
I firmly believe that healthcare is a human right and should be accessible to everyone. It should be of good quality and available where and when needed. Mountain Park puts that belief into action. It is a privilege to part of this organization. Mountain Park provides hope for what is possible.
