A Career in Healthcare

I served on the hospital Governing Board for eight years and through that work, I gained an excellent perspective on the hospital’s mission while helping to craft a vision for the future. When I had the opportunity to pursue a career at Clark Fork Valley Hospital, I found it an ideal way to combine my interest in finance with managing a mission-driven business – one with a higher purpose than just being financially successful.
