Executive Director, Case Management/Social Services/
Joined St. Joseph Hospital in 1978
"In my previous job I had the opportunity to frequently visit all hospitals in Orange County. Every time I would visit St. Joseph Hospital, I could tell it had something special. The Hospital’s values, reputation for excellent care the friendliness of the staff made St. Joseph stand above all other Orange County hospitals. This remains true…30 years later.
"I love the caring spirit that permeates St. Joseph Hospital, for our patients and families as well as for each other. I enjoy working in an organization that promotes teamwork. We work very closely as team members, both in nursing and outside of nursing. Each member of the team is highly respected and is given the opportunity to provide input at every level."
