“I’m a retired partner in a large management and technology consulting firm, and previously served as a naval officer and civilian within the Defense Department. I have served as a regional vice president in a national non-profit association, and board member in several church, charitable, and community-support organizations. My active duty experience gave my family the opportunity to live all over the world and, since my wife Sandy worked as a public health nurse, see what a difference access to quality healthcare can make in people’s lives. We are both patients at Mountain Laurel, grateful to the staff for the wonderful care we receive there, and I’m proud to help Mountain Laurel serve the community.”

Oakland, MD

“I joined the Board of Directors in May of 2016. My husband, Steve and I came to Oakland in the fall of 2015 after I retired from Providence Health and Services, a large health care organization in the Northwest, where I spent the majority of my career with responsibilities in ambulatory care, nursing supervision, quality management, safety and Diabetes Education. Becoming a patient at Mountain Laurel Medical Center, I discovered a need for my expertise to serve the community here. Though retired, I maintained status as Nurse Emeritus and Certified Diabetes Educator through 2016 to assist Mountain Laurel in the development of our Diabetes Self- Management Education program and in the achievement of certification through the American Association of Diabetes Educators. My history also includes certification in Health Coaching and Massage Therapy, volunteer service as a Court Appointed Support Advocate for Abused and Neglected Children, and as an EMT in Emergency Medical Services. I feel honored to serve on the Board and work with the providers at MLMC to maintain the quality and integrity of medical care provided to our community.”
