What led you to the role you currently hold in your company? Did you see yourself in this position when you started out in the workforce?  

I  originally intended to become a city manager but changed to healthcare administration. I became fascinated with the complexities of the job and the opportunity to make a difference in the quality of people’s lives.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced over the years, and how did you meet it? 
Leading change – getting a sufficient number of people to embrace a vision and adopt new and improved ways of doing things; pursue excellence and not be satisfied with mediocrity; so that the hospital/health system actually realizes in large measure its reason for being. This includes overcoming critics and those with little vision, or no vision.

What was your first job, and what lesson did you learn from this job?
Working with my dad, the rancher. I learned honesty, to work hard, bring energy and enthusiasm to your job, be an innovator, finish the work and strive for perfection.

What’s the one thing you can’t leave your house without each morning?

What piece of advice do you share with your team regularly?
To lead by example, walk the talk and live up to our purpose.

What was your most fulfilling career moment?
There are many of those moments to know you made a difference in the lives of the people you serve.

What is the best part of working here in the Bayou Region?
I love the people. They are the best anywhere.

How are you going to impact the Bayou Region in 2023?
Continue work to improve health, wellness and quality of life.
