Many of her achievements show assets of caring, equality, and social justice.

Every Wednesday night for seven years, local health care workers volunteered their services in the basement of Trinity Lutheran Church. These volunteers included physicians, nurses, medical technologists, pharmacists, social workers, clerical workers, and interpreters. The Free Clinic, which provided free basic health care to the uninsured and underinsured, operated entirely with donations of dollars and supplies. In eight years, the clinic served over 4600 patients.
