Who Are We-Meet the Staff

Staff include public health nurses, health educators, human services employment program specialists, an accountant and administrative assistants.  Contracts are held with nurse practitioners, behavioral health specialist, and interpreters. Most of the staff has been with the department over 5 years, with the majority having 10-20 years of experience working for the Health Department.

Leadership is provided by a four member Management Team with a combined 40+ years of Public Health and human services experience, and a physician who practiced for a number of years in Pacific County, received his master’s in public health from the University of Washington in 2001, and serves as the county health officer.
