I am very pleased to join the board of La Familia. Every day, La Familia is providing excellent, vital, medical care to diverse patients, and treating each of them with dignity and respect. Its mission is important to the wellbeing of the people of Santa Fe, and I am proud to support this organization.
My partner and I have had a home in Santa Fe since 1999, and moved here full-time in 2006. Since moving here I have served as a volunteer running a program at the Emergency Youth Shelter, and continue to serve as a board member of Espanola Humane. I started my career as a CPA, and my expertise includes accounting, finance, real estate, investments and business strategy. I spent most of my career working in large corporations, and after relocating to Santa Fe I was recruited to be chief executive of a local medical group staffing the emergency rooms of local hospitals. I soon discovered that management experience and financial expertise was a valuable compliment to the clinical skills of medical providers. I hope to make a similar, positive contribution at La Familia.
