Board Member - WakeMed Health & Hospitals

I believe everyone should be the healthiest they can be, and I’m on a mission to help others do just that. By being on the board for WakeMed, I can serve my community.

My passion comes from my mom. She was a great caregiver and an inspiration to me, and I have inherited that spirit from her. I love to serve and raise money for charities I believe in.

When I was young, I was a candy striper at WakeMed and witnessed what we could do back then. I’ve been drawn to health care ever since. When my family needed health care, we received the services we needed right here at WakeMed.

Knowing that not everyone can afford the health care services they need really concerns me. That’s why I am so passionate about my service to WakeMed. We are an important asset for this community, and I can’t imagine not giving myself to such a worthy community treasure.
