“I’m a family physician, working on population health through the local health department. I truly believe that every system is perfectly designed for the results it gets. If we want health equity for all, we need to redesign the system we live in – KHC is doing that by focusing on outcomes and aligning strategic partners to initiate change.”

“Although much more difficult now as a mom of twin 3-year-olds and a 1-year-old, I love traveling. Love exploring new places, learning about new cultures. I’ve explored all 50 states and over 50 countries. I’m looking forward to when my kids are a little older and get the travel bug as well!
I also was a diver in college and high school. Love jumping from high places!”
