Please describe your relevant analytical skills. To give more information about my voting, I have been voting within Austin since 2008 but was in Nashville, TN for employment the year 2014-2016. I am able to organize data as my background is research so I am well aware of various methods of discerning data.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. I am a facts type of person. That is how I make decisions. I don't make decisions based on emotion.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I enjoy that Austin is extremely diverse and is a community for all.
Please provide your employment history. I've been employed with Texas Oncology-Austin for the past 4 years as a Research Manager and am a very successful leader within that organization. Before that I worked at Vanderbilt Cancer Center as a Director in Research. Before that, I was at Texas Oncology (returned in 2016) and was also employed at St. David's Medical Center within their NeuroTexas Institute.
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. I listen. I'm fair. And I believe that facts matter most within determining the collective within a community.
