What I’m working on right now: Community Health Needs Assessments

Last place I traveled to: New Orleans, LA, for the Annual NRHA Conference

Best advice I ever received: “Make yourself a resource to others.”

Favorite thing about working at a SORH: My background is Agricultural Economics,
and I feel that working for the OK SORH allows me to continue in my chosen field and
niche of rural and community development.

3 great things about rural health in my state: The people, the people, the people-
Truly those involved in rural health in Oklahoma are the best people you will ever meet.

If I weren’t doing this, I would…probably be in finance or banking.

Favorite quote: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
