I have always dreamt of living in Colorado. This is my place - the perfect location to realize my personal and professional passions. When presented with the opportunity to join Children's Hospital Colorado, as Vice President of Mental Health, in July 2017, I knew it was a chance that I could not refuse.
Serving at Children's Colorado has given me the unique position of aligning with countless partners, colleagues and friends in a shared vision of transforming our state's systems of care for pediatric mental health. Together we are bringing a lifelong passion to fruition, for the betterment of the lives and health of children and youth today and for generations to come. I am thrilled to be here, among so many who are willing to work hard side-by-side for these much needed changes.
This July, my passion for Colorado is growing in another way as I take on the challenge of the Courage Classic as a member of the inaugural Pediatric Mental Health Institute team -- Psyched to Climb. Once again, I find myself surrounded by passionate individuals who are willing to dedicate their time and energy to raising funds for mental health. And along the way, we also hope to reduce the stigma....and have a lot of fun!
I hope you will join with us by making a contribution to my ride -- to support the Pediatric Mental Health Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado. Thank you, in advance, for believing in me - and for choosing to stand together for the kids who need us the most, in our beautiful mountain state.
Should you have questions about the Courage Classic ride, or our Psyched to Climb team, or even about the vision and strategic plan for the Pediatric Mental Health Institute, I'd welcome the chance to visit with you personally.
Thank you again - and ride on!
