Who We Are

The Sonoma Valley Hospital Foundation is led by an engaged and experienced Board of Directors and Advisory Council. Their energy and efforts help to ensure the success of our hospital.

My personal wellness journey, and subsequent connection to health and well-being has shaped my view on the difference

between surviving and thriving in life. It is a big deal that Sonoma has its own hospital. I don’t want to take it for granted…so I’m here to help protect, improve, and invest in the asset of our hospital.

I’m honored to be on the board and joined because we care about SVH and what it is doing for our community.

We understand the importance of philanthropy to sustain our hospital and its facilities and equipment.

As a small community hospital SVH is financially vulnerable.

I will apply my professional experience to assist it in meeting its goals for growth and community support.

Having been a nurse at UCSF for my career, I have a love for healthcare. I’ve come to

appreciate what a jewel our hospital really is and see its benefit for our community—great healthcare right here, alleviating patients and families having to travel.

The Foundation is making an important difference for our hospital, and being

on the board of SVHF has given me full appreciation of the importance of the work it does to help SVH thrive. It feels good to give time and effort to support something that’s doing so much good for the community.

SVH is indispensable for our community.

I am in constant communication with our hospital all day long—ordering tests, diagnostic studies for my patients. Our hospital is vital to the good health of Sonoma.
