How are you impacting the health of your region?
My passion is in the local, rural communities of the Midwest. I thrive off of sector collaboration and community change. Working in Jamestown, I have the ability to dedicate my time and resources to the area community; whether it is through health advocacy and education, prevention messaging, grant writing, policy change and much more (particularly in the area of substance use prevention and physical activity). I also work as a certified car seat technician providing car seat checks, education and distributions.
