Executive Director - Courageous Hearts
As the Executive Director of Courageous Hearts, Hope sees Vistage as an opportunity to learn from other successful leaders in different fields and to apply their best practices to her own organization. Additionally, the Vistage model aligns with Hope’s collaborative leadership style.
Hope’s passion for improving access to mental health services for underserved populations began early in her career when she worked as a social worker in a hospice care facility. There, she witnessed firsthand the impact that a lack of mental health resources can have on patients and their families during end-of-life care. Under her leadership, Courageous Hearts has grown to become a leading provider of mental health services for terminally ill poor people and their families in the San Diego community.
