Thank you for electing me as Region One representative to ASHE.
During my 33 years of experience, healthcare professionals’ roles have expanded from basic health and safety management to such diverse initiatives as medical technologies, changing dietary and cultural needs, green initiatives, and more. We are often the go-to resource in our healthcare system for everyone from C-suite executives to direct caregivers – and frankly it’s only getting more complex every day.
To help our healthcare environments thrive, we need in-depth understanding of a broad array of technologies so that when the chief of surgery wants to update surgical suites, or the CEO asks about implementing solar power, or the board wants to decommission a plant, we can confidently lead through these changes.
And where do we get the confidence?
By being able to tap into the right information – meaning tested, honest, updated, and in-depth – which is often only available through ASHE and its members.
Our greatest strength is our collective knowledge and experience.
We work best when we work together.
Increase educational opportunities for ASHE members through addition of on-demand online courses
Incentivize resource sharing: case studies, best-practices, formal and informal meetups
Add to ASHE knowledgebase to provide additional tested, honest, and reliable resources for members

My Qualifications to Serve:
Thirty-three years of healthcare facilities experience in a wide range of settings from community health organizations to rehab to large healthcare systems.
Dedicated to the principle that ASHE members have incredible collective knowledge that needs to be collected and made widely available.
Experience as a board member and advisory member within organizations such as the Malcolm Baldridge Award.
Dedication to mentoring and connecting with members through many professional groups including ASHE, NEHES, and NFPA.
Thank you for electing me as your Region One representative
