My road in life has taken me all over.
I grew up in the California Central Valley and moved to Texas in my 20s.
After moving to Texas, I started working for Blue Cross Blue Shield as a claims examiner and a customer service representative.
I spent five years with Blue Cross Blue Shield—during which I got married, started a family, and moved to Sweetwater, Texas—and then decided to look for a job closer to home in Sweetwater.
I found a job working for Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital as an office clerk.
My job with the hospital wasn’t paying enough, so I left and got a job working for the post office—I liked working outside but doing so in the extreme West Texas weather wasn’t sustainable.
After six years with the post office, I went back to work for Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital as a human resources assistant—the switch allowed me to have more time for my family.
I went back to school and earned my associate degree in business marketing technology from Texas State Technical College.
I was then promoted to marketing director for Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital as well as executive director for the Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital Foundation.

Day to Day

There's no typical day for me. Today, for example, I led a camera crew around the hospital as they filmed a virtual tour. As the marketing director, I'm also in charge of PR, so I work chamber events. I'm also part of any type of community events that go on. I lead a meeting for all of the directors in the morning. I spend time posting social media and updating our website. I also work on bigger projects, like our employee engagement survey and community health needs assessment.
