I have lived in West Volusia for 24 years. Mother of 2 and a Nana to 3 beautiful grandchildren. For the past 18 years I have worked in the Dental industry and 3 of those years have worked as a Navigator for the Affordable Health Care.
I have observed a growing need for Health Insurance and Healthcare education in Volusia County. My experience in the Healthcare field and my passion to help my community become healthy is the main reason I am running for the West Volusia Hospital Authority Board.
For the past year I have served as a Citizen Advisory Board for the West Volusia Hospital Authority and have provided critical input on Healthcare related initiatives and decisions directly affecting my community. This board serves the indigent community and partners with many organizations in the community to give health services at Primary Care Clinics. It also provides mental health and many other health services. I want to be the liaison between my community and the board to make sure the citizens that need the services are being helped.
As a Christian woman I strongly believe that community service is a mechanism that can pave the way for a better future for the present and upcoming generations. Proverbs 13:30-31 says, “A relaxed attitude lengthens a man’s life; jealousy rots it away. Anyone who oppresses the poor is insulting God who made them, To help the poor is to honor God.”
Please consider voting for me so that I can continue to better our West Volusia Hospital Authority services for you.
