“I believe strongly in high quality and affordable healthcare for all. While planning for healthcare in retirement, my research led me to Common Ground, whose mission and core values align fully with mine. I was pleased to learn that we have a local non-profit provider that puts the health of its members and access to high quality affordable care ahead of profits. I view the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors for CGHC as a way for me to use my broad financial experience and expertise to support CGHC and its members to fulfill its mission and to become the provider of choice for health insurance in Wisconsin.”
