What motivates your desire to give back?
Giving back is a family tradition. My grandmother volunteered for the Red Cross during WWII, and my mother volunteered at the hospital in her town.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
I feel my time and treasure have the most reach and impact here. St. Mary strengthens our community and supports healthy living in so many ways.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
On a personal note, volunteering broadens one’s horizons, and takes you out of yourself. If you’re sad, lonely, or depressed — volunteer. It just feels good.
