What an incredible time to be an ambulatory care practitioner, and member of ASHP! The strides taken by our profession while coming into and through a global pandemic have invigorated great opportunity. With evolving payment models, advancements in scope of practice and recognition, and increasingly innovative practice environments, we are well positioned to continue growing and improving patient care and health outcomes.

Much of the growth in ambulatory care has been facilitated by the hard work of our Section members. It is imperative that we continue to build upon the resources and education to allow our members and learners to positively impact the profession. We must also focus on well-being and resilience to ensure we are equipped to navigate the challenges of the complex healthcare environment, while striving to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion in patient care, our profession and our community.

Through the various roles as a servant and leader in ASHP and the Section, I have been impassioned by the drive to push ambulatory care practice forward. Experiences gained through working with talented Advisory Group practitioners give me confidence that we can continue to achieve provider status in more states and ultimately at the national level, while seeking sustainability through payment reform. I am prepared to serve as Chair and advocate for continued work toward achieving these goals and continue the magnificent work of our current and past Section leaders. It is a tremendous honor to be nominated, and a privilege to continue serving the Section.
