Why I Serve…

“I have elected to serve on the board because as an Eagle Scout, I have always strived to follow the Boy Scout motto which is to do my best and help other people at all times. In Central Oregon, we have an ever-growing aging population that needs all of us helping this population connect to resources so they may live comfortably improving their well-being. Having had the opportunity to serve the City of Bend as Councilor, and my volunteer work with other organizations – I look forward to applying those experiences and moving this association forward and living their mission daily.”
