To celebrate this theme, each week in March we will spotlight the contributions and accomplishments of women who are health care heroes and in key areas of leadership within Riverside and our community. We will also share facts about disparities in health care for women and how Riverside and our partners are making a difference through education, programs and services.

It is important to network with other women leaders, so I celebrate throughout the year. I attend many events for women through the Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, The Women’s Coastal Leadership Forum, The Virginia Tech Women Impact Virginia forum and I coordinate Ladies Leadership Series at Riverside!

I celebrate Women’s History by reflecting on the great women in leadership roles who have gone on before us. What led the applicant to want to work at Riverside? My family members (grandmother and sister) had received excellent care at Riverside when I was a child/teenager. I decided that I wanted to become a nurse and work at Riverside and my dream became a reality on May 11, 1981.

I pay homage to the special women who were pivotal in my life. They are not famous, but they are very special to me. Women who exemplified strength, courage, faith, compassion and taught me life lessons that have carried me through peaks and valleys in life. They’re all gone now, Janice (Mom), Florence (great grandmother), Othella (grandmother), Pearline (Aunt), and Gerry (Godmother). I honor them each day remembering those early lessons. Miss you ladies every day. Thank you for your love and the many gifts you left with me.
