What motivates your desire to give back?
I was raised in a devout Irish Catholic family and my parents instilled the responsibility to always work on behalf of others, especially seniors, disabled and those in need.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
I believe in the story of the Sisters of St. Joseph and their mission of “Serving thy dear neighbor.” I’m also a member of St. Joseph’s Spiritual Care team.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
I was asked by a friend. It’s something I’ve really jumped into.
