SENIOR DIRECTOR

DIVERSITY AND COMMUNITY AFFAIRS

Mountain Park Health 

I spent my early childhood in Nigeria, but call Arizona home because I have been here for more than 30 years. Some may not know this, but when I was little I wanted to be an artist. To this day I still love art, but now I have the ability to appreciate it on a deeper level and collect it.

I have been with Mountain Park since 2008. What attracted me to the organization was its willingness to take risks. I believe it’s so important to build relationships. If you can go out and meet people and get to know them on a personal level, you can help them and they can help you. Over time, these relationships blossom and you become so much more aware of what is happening all around you. I would love to see this organization grow to serve more people, while continuing to maintain the feel that makes Mountain Park unique.

I am a huge proponent of philanthropy. I find it interesting because I never knew anything about it growing up. When I was introduced to it, I was fortunate enough to have resources to give to things I believe in. I consider it a great opportunity to do something positive with what I’ve been blessed with.
