My parents came to Gold Beach after the big Flood. My dad, Dr. Caughran, practiced medicine in Gold Beach for 20 plus years.  

I grew up in Ophir, attended grade school there and graduated Gold Beach High School in 1974.  I graduated as a Registered Nurse from Good Samaritan School of Nursing in 1977.  I have enjoyed practicing as a nurse in Oregon, Washington, California, Alaska, and Florida.  

Completing a travel assignment in Florida where I welcomed my first grandson, I came back to Gold Beach to enjoy its incredible beauty and to renew old friendships. I now have the privilege of caring for the people of this community while making new friends.  

Thank you for this opportunity to serve!
