What motivated your desire to give back?
I was one of nine children in what I would describe as a “volunteer family.” We were taught to share our good fortune with others.
Why do you support the Medical Center?
In addition to giving back to help others, I enjoy working on Foundation events and have made so many good friends over the years through my volunteer service.
Why did you agree to join the Foundation board?
Some friends of mine already on the Foundation board suggested that we could have fun and help the community by working on Foundation events.
