Along my journey into healthcare, I have learned that transparency and energy are my salient features patients and colleagues appreciate most. During this last legislative year, I served my first term as a committee member. Outside of MAPA, I have been actively engaging clinicians in leadership roles to ensure we are represented at all layers of decision making that involve physician assistants. I would like transfer more of this momentum to MAPA. My vision is to groom MAPA members for leadership both locally and within AAPA. I believe we need to stay relevant with current initiatives that impact our profession. We can accomplish this with an energized member base and stronger presence in influencing organizations.
