I have over twenty-five years of executive level experience in healthcare leading populations health advancements impacting millions of people in Minnesota. I've led smoke-free public policy efforts, obesity prevention programs, e-cigarette awareness campaigns and am the co-founder of Honoring Choices Minnesota, an effort that encourages people to talk about their end-of-life care preferences. When I decided to leave healthcare I searched for an organization like ARRM because I have a passion for supporting people with disabilities. I have a beloved niece who has flourished in life because of the services and supports she receives on a daily basis. I wanted to join an organization that supports people like my niece. I found what I was looking for at ARRM!
