As an integral part of the County’s senior leadership team, Tina will have an ongoing role working with community partners and system leaders for large-scale impact projects.
Tina recognizes the value of local community service and has volunteered to work with a variety of organizations over the past 30 years, including chambers of commerce, local civic organizations, youth sports, and booster organizations.
