“Remember who you are and what you stand for.” (my mom said this each time I left the house!)
I have worked in non-profit administration for organizations serving Central Oregon for nearly 20 years. From 2000-2006, I was working for Healthy Beginnings, and then took some time off to stay home with my kiddos…helping to give them a healthy beginning! Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to help launch a non-profit health collaborative, assist in the building and implementing the Community Benefit Department at St. Charles Health System, and walked at-risk youth through the process of qualifying for free orthodontics, maintaining their grades and helping them become volunteers in their communities.
I returned to Healthy Beginnings in early 2017 because it’s a program that has always remained close to my heart. In my current role, I provide administrative support for screenings, accounts receivable and payable, fundraising and donor management, and marketing materials and campaigns. Compassionate people who put their love into action by helping those around them are what inspires me…which I suppose means that I’m working with some of the most amazing people on the planet.
In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, fly fishing for steelhead, and traveling.
