Jennifer is also heavily involved as a volunteer with local animal rescue groups.




Willa Doroy is an accomplished administrative professional with over 15 years of combined experience in the healthcare field. As a proud mother of three children, Willa had many obstacles to overcome, eventually working her way up to leading roles such as Regional HR Director and Chief Director of Marketing. Alongside work, she finally accomplished one of her goals of graduating with a science degree, concentration in Business Health Administration. In her new role, she is dedicated to building relationships within her community, helping Salinas flourish, and putting her hometown back on the map! On her free time, she enjoys spending it with her family, getting out, and being active.
