What motivates your desire to give back?
The compassionate mission of St. Joseph to care for everyone regardless of ability to pay and the generous hearts of the Sisters of St. Joseph.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
Because I believe in the mission and know that it takes more than just operating revenue to make our hospital the best it can be.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
I practiced at St. Joseph for a long time, knew a lot of employees there and wanted to be a liaison between the foundation and the physicians. I also wanted to help inspire other physicians to be a part of our philanthropic mission.
