Senior Vice President of National Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Policy and Chief Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity Officer, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals
What inspires you in your work?
While I find inspiration in many things, I am most inspired in my work by the recurring privilege of witnessing the power of the human spirit to courageously overcome seemingly impossible barriers, and triumph.
If you could change one thing about healthcare, what would it be?
I would ensure that health and healthcare equity are achieved for all people.
What life experience has taught or changed you the most?
The one life experience that has undoubtedly taught or changed me the most is meeting my soul mate early in life. We are still thriving together after 43 years of marriage!
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I think people might be surprised to learn that as a budding young artist, I sold my first paintings when I was only 12 years old.
