I have a deep understanding of our health care system. Personally, I have experienced the depths of sadness and the highs of happiness as a user and a provider. As a daughter and a wife my eyes were opened, my heart broken, and my determination strengthened. My mother and my husband used home health, assisted living, skilled care, and hospice care all with positive outcomes. These personal experiences have shaped my dedication and commitment to the care of our elders as much, if not more, than any other factor in my career or educational background. --Sally
