Engaging partners to become donation advocates.
I am a registered donor myself, but I have always been involved with healthcare and the end-of-life processes and its influence on our lives.
I develop and maintain the relationships with our hospital partners, specifically the M Health Fairview System. Through this, I collaborate with M Health Fairview in preserving their organ, tissue, and eye donation programs, processes, and policies.
I was previously a health unit coordinator at a local family birth center, and part of that role was making referral calls to LifeSource for donation potential. I completed my Master’s in Public Health in December 2018, with focuses on how death and the dying process can guide our daily lives and educating our communities about health needs.
I work at LifeSource because of the mission and the impact of organ, tissue, eye donation can have. I have realized that LifeSource fulfills my mission of being part of my diverse community in helping educate about the different health issues, needs, and opportunities there are to help others. The families and healthcare teams that I see every day inspire me to continue this mission.
