What word would you use to describe OLE Health?
What have you learned about yourself, your community, or health care since joining OLE Health?
Our wellness is interconnected. A healthier Napa is healthier for my kids, which is healthier for me and makes the world a better place.
What is your favorite part of working at OLE Health?
Serving the community in which I live.
What have been some of the highlights over the past 15 years?
I loved working Diabetes Group with Dr. Moore in years past. I loved Farmworker events where we saw patients in the vineyards and the COVID-19 vaccine clinic at its height felt like we were in this together!
How would you explain your job to a group of five-year-olds?
I work as part of a team to make Napa healthier.
What is something that you wish more people knew about OLE Health?

Listen to each other, learn from patients, build relationships.
