Why I serve:
“I respect the Council on Aging’s prioritization of community building and compassionate care for our region’s aging population. As the Executive Director of a local, community-based organization that provides holistic and proactive planning for advanced illness care, I want to help ensure that our community’s elders have access to the highest quality of education and support resources to ease life’s various transitions.”
