In 2014 I joined the GHM team and a recent visit to Cameroon, visiting our partner hospitals and clinics, reinforced my desire to contribute my energies to improving health care abroad.  In a world filled with problems, I would like to think that bandages will overcome bullets, love will overcome hate, and God’s intent for the human condition will be done.


In my free time  volunteer with Lyngblomsten, senior care center in St. Paul and through my church I volunteer with Feed My Starving Children and Loaves and Fishes.


My favorite food is fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy!


I find Matthew 25:31-45 germane to my work at GHM especially verse 36: “I was sick and you took care of me”.
