Share you personal in health and healthcare system improvement.
My personal interest in healthcare stems from a passion for “leveling the playing field” for rural providers and patients. Growing up, living and working in rural areas has influenced my thinking on the unique challenges faced by providers in delivering care as well as patients in receiving care in the rural setting. Often, initiatives are directed by organizations and individuals who do not understand nor want to acknowledge that there are REAL barriers to providing care in the rural setting.
What are you currently working on that you are most excited about? How do you think it will drive improvements to health and healthcare in the community?
Currently, one of my main projects is to facilitate the implementation of a data system for the KPCA members to provide more real time data on patient care. The goal of the project is to provide more real time, actionable data to drive positive change to impact quality, cost and care.
Why do you and your organization belong to the KHC? What do you find most valuable as a member?
KHC provides a voice to members in an impactful way. The networking, committees, educational events, etc. are all high quality and are a tremendous asset.
What is the KHC’s biggest contribution to improving community health and healthcare?
KHC’s ability to bring all diverse stakeholders (payers, providers, employers) into the healthcare conversation.
What do you do in your spare time? Provide a fun fact about yourself.
I am a huge lover of podcasts and do not listen to just one genre. A few of my favorites include: No Sleep Podcast, Every Little Thing, This Podcast Will Kill You, Lore, LeVar Burton Reads and Sasquatch Chronicles.
If you could spend the day with one celebrity, who would it be and why?
Stephen King as I would like a glimpse into his daily life and see how that influences/impacts his writing.
