Why are you seeking this office?
I have lived in Jeffco for over 38 years and want to serve the county, community and the individuals who call it their home too. I understand the importance of this job and am mindful of the needs to those it serves. I can offer experience, education, compassion and professionalism.
What makes you the most qualified person for the position?
I am an RN, for over 35 years. I have a wide range of experience from Forensic and Psychiatric nursing to Medical/Surgical Nursing and a Nurse Educator. I have also been a Medical Records Director. My education ranks up to a Doctorate degree. I have worked at the County Jail and had connections with Law Enforcement through my DOC patients also. I bring many years of leadership and have a high level of ethics, accountability and responsibility, along with the skills needed to manage an office and the knowledge to investigate, critically think and problem solve in many situations.
What would your top two priorities be if elected?
Top priorities: Suicide Prevention and Public Safety. In general, these issues are directly related to reducing the number of deaths and should be brought to the forefront, and addressed as a priority within our families, community and county. Suicide prevention also includes intervention and postvention. I believe in working upstream to tackle this issue. This means providing health care that works, addressing social issues, and assisting those in rural areas too. Public safety is a huge net that covers accidents, crime, juveniles, services provided and violence rates. It also includes gun safety. Our sustainability requires that we address these issues.
What else should the voters know about you?
I am a dedicated, ethical and compassionate person in whatever I do. In addition, I do volunteer work in my community, whether with the Jefferson County Nurses, PEO, Sigma Theta Tau, the homeless or with children. I am certified in Critical Stress Incident Management and can handle various crisis situations.
