Why I Serve…

“I have chosen to serve on the Board for the Council on Aging because I wanted to be one of the catalysts for positive change for the services and resources available to older adults. I love collaborating with different players in our community who have products or services that impact the lives of our seniors, and learning where the gaps are. I think the Council on Aging is poised to make a massive difference in the lives of older adults in Central Oregon, and it is very exciting that I get to play a part in that.”
