For me its personal. I have several family members who are affected by invisible disabilities and by working with the Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA) I believe I can help make a difference in theirs and the lives of many others. I bring extensive technology and healthcare data experience with a deep understanding of the application of processing healthcare information. I have over 20 years of leadership experience in working with community-based volunteer organizations and I believe I can apply that experience as an IDA Board member to help take us to the next level of community understanding, financial stability, and understanding of our mission. All of which will benefit those I care about!
