I am honored to have been elected to the Grossmont Healthcare District Board in 2016 with almost 90,000 votes, the second highest vote count in the past ten years. I would like to thank everyone for their overwhelming support and encouragement.
I’ve decided to run for re-election in the fall of 2020. I eagerly seek your votes!
On the Grossmont Healthcare District Board, I have served as the Secretary and Vice-President during an exciting time of many accomplishments, including the completion of the Prop G improvements at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, rezoning of the district into 5 areas and collaborating with the County in the Alzheimer’s Response Team Pilot Program.
I have served as the Chairperson on several committees including the Grants and Sponsorship, Public Relations, Facilities, Strategic Plan and the Library Committees; while also participating on the Investment, Finance and Audit Committees.
While leading the Grants and Sponsorship committee, we initiated an annual Grants Workshop to help nonprofits with the details of the Grants process. We also utilized the community healthcare assessment to better serve and focus on the top five healthcare issues of East County. In addition, we also recognized the shortage of Advanced Behavioral Health workers and of Nurse Practitioners; as a result, we created two new types of scholarships to help increase the number of practitioners in these fields.
During my time as the Library Committee Chair, we increased the days and hours that our medical library is open, increasing access to the public.
While many of you know me as a businesswoman Realtor, I have over twenty years’ experience as a Registered Nurse. The blend of my two careers has been perfect for the Grossmont Healthcare District Board.
My nursing background includes working in hospitals, emergency rooms, clinics, and research facilities. I have participated on research boards, presented at several national nursing conferences, and have been published in medical publications. All of my nursing career has been spent providing patient care and oversight connected to hospitals and their systems.
As a conservative businesswoman for the past 16 years, I have developed successful business and financial practices. With my extensive medical and business experience, I am committed to meeting the healthcare needs of the Grossmont Healthcare District, while providing accountability, long-term planning, as well as maintaining the lease agreement partnership with Sharp Grossmont Hospital.
I have lived in East County for more than 40 years. Most of my life, I have volunteered in my community. In the past I have served as the Santee Chamber of Commerce Chairperson, and other various leadership roles in community churches; as well as I presently am a Santee-Lakeside Rotarian.
My area of service, Grossmont Healthcare District 1, includes Santee, parts of El Cajon and La Mesa. Having been active in the district, I have a great perspective on the unmet health needs.
Thank you for your vote and support.
