“Strong people stand up for themselves, but stronger people stand up for others.”
Who inspires you?
Growing up with a disability, my parents didn’t treat me as though as I was different. They taught me I could do anything I put my mind to if I worked for it. I am working to instill the same concept with my daughter. I am thankful for my family, friends and special colleagues who have supported me personally and professionally along the way.
What is the most rewarding experience you have had in public health?
Working as a public information manager allows me to use my experience and love for journalism to serve the people of Oklahoma. My biggest reward is knowing that sharing information about important health topics can impact our state now and in the future. Information about topics such as vaccinations, disease outbreaks, injury prevention, emergency preparedness, sexual health, food safety, chronic disease and infant health affect everyone.
