What motivated your desire to give back?
From those who have been given much, much is expected in return.
Why do you support the Medical Center?
Community hospitals are incredibly important in the everyday life of our friends and neighbors. I was drawn to the idea of supporting a quality, caring resource like Providence Little Company of Mary, that is readily available when unexpected health challenges occur.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
I was inspired by the commitment exhibited by many friends who had been involved with the Foundation for years. Recognizing that people you admire have such passion for a cause makes it an easy decision to join them in service.
