Green Candidate Jacqueline Devaney's Biography

My name is Jacqueline Devaney, and I will be running for Clatsop Health District position three. I have 8 1/2 years of nursing experience including the fields of home health, dialysis, and med surg, am the current Chair of the Pacific Green Party of Clatsop County chapter, and am a member of the Pacific Green Party State Coordinating Committee.

I also have experience in nursing management as a clinical coordinator at a dialysis facility, during which time my clinic experienced a crisis in turnover of staff.  I was able to train the new staff to take excellent care of the patients so that the patients' health outcomes remained high. During my time as a clinical coordinator, my clinic won an award for having one of the highest outcome measures in the region.

I am running for this position because I am passionate about members of our community, especially those who are most vulnerable and who require advocates that make decisions based on what will benefit these residents the most.
