Senior Director of Human Resources
After spending the first 15 years of my professional career at a large international bank, I determined the financial industry wasn’t fulfilling my need to give back. I transitioned to public education knowing my work would impact Arizona’s youth, our future leaders. After an amazing 15 years, I realized it was time to make a different impact. I had been exploring healthcare and that’s when I discovered Mountain Park Health Center. Mountain Park’s commitment to the community is what drew me in and why so many of us embrace this work family.
Every day, my goal is to have a positive impact on the patients of Mountain Park and provide an engaging and positive culture to our employees. It is critical that our employees feel valued and have a sense of belonging. It is in fact the employees that create Mountain Park; they are our biggest asset. Without our caring employees we would only have empty buildings.
Outside of work, I have four amazing children. My two youngest play competitive soccer and I enjoy many weekends in beautiful Arizona watching their teams compete. I have an older son in college studying radiation therapy and my oldest has a desire to be a photographer. Having a balanced life is important to me, so I run a few times a week, attend fitness boot camp and eat fairly healthy. I believe that if you don’t care for yourself, you can’t care for others. I carry that personal philosophy to my work.
As I continue my journey here at Mountain Park, I want to ensure that we grow as an organization and provide more, quality services to our community. I want us to not only compete with every FQHC in the United States, but all organizations. We focus so much on our patients and their wellbeing, I feel that it is my responsibility to make sure we are doing the same for our employees.
