It is with mixed emotions and gratitude that I announce my upcoming retirement in June of 2018. It has been my pleasure to work in the behavioral health industry for the past 41 years.

I started my career at Solvista Health as a generalist clinician for Salida, Buena Vista and Leadville and worked toward becoming the Chief Executive Officer in my 20th year with the organization. I have learned many life lessons along the way and will cherish my experiences at Solvista Health.

I know that our staff will carry on with the passion to provide the best healthcare for our four counties. I am also confident that our Board of Directors will ensure that there will be outstanding executive leadership moving forward. It has been an honor to work with our staff, volunteer leaders, clients and community members and I thank you all for your collaboration and contributions. In the meantime, I look forward to our continuing great work together in the coming months.
