We serve this place, this space, and the people.

As a primary care doctor and executive leader here, I’m very happy that we can offer our patients excellent care. This County listens to its leaders and while we are always mindful of not wasting resources, when my team wants to do new things, we get support."

While our healthcare providers and nurses work on the front lines, my team and I are right behind them providing tools and technology they need to make their jobs easier and to improve patient outcomes. This is a job where my passion for finding solutions to complex problems meets my purpose to serve the community. That’s what I love about this position and working for the County."
