|EDUCATION||University of Alabama (BS, MHA)|
|PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION||When I became chief executive officer, I first acted like a glorified chief operational officer. More recently, I’ve come to better understand my responsibilities to the entire community. I now see new opportunities every day to ensure our organization is maximizing our community impact.|
|CIVIC EFFORT||Not only did we experience the impact of COVID-19 as a health care provider, but we also were impacted by the devastating effects of Hurricane Sally, a major bridge closure due to storm damage, and the aftermath of the tragic terrorist incident at Pensacola Naval Air Station. Our organization and our team members stepped up to meet the rapidly evolving needs of our community in countless ways.|
