In speaking of her new role, Priya stated,
My family and I have benefited tremendously from hospice services in the past, and I am excited to become part of an organization that has provided such invaluable end-of-life comfort and support for over 40 years. I hope to support and evolve Rose Crumb’s vision to provide free heartfelt end-of-life care in Clallam County.
When discussing bringing Priya on board, Peter Raiswell (President of the VHOCC Board) said,
