When Ginny was askedWhy do you want to work for CHCW?

She replied. “I am looking forward to working for CHCW because I am passionate about working with underserved children. With the population CHCW treats, I will be able to address social determinants of health and toxic stress which are areas that I believe are vitally important to establishing a healthy base for a future of success.”

Ginny aspires to….

“I aspire to not only make Yakima a place where I work, but also to become actively involved in and to know the community. I plan to be a voice for our children not only in our offices, but in our communities and government.”

“On a personal note, I also aspire to one day hike the Appalachian Trail.”
