Background & Experience
Kayla Williams currently serves as a Program Coordinator where she supports our member health centers' quality improvement initiatives and serves as a trainer for some of the many workforce development opportunities under CHP's emerging Training Institute model.
Ms. Williams' works tirelessly each year to coordinate and co-facilitate "Day at the Capitol" meetings with our Deputy Director of Policy and External Relations, CHP's Board of Directors, and State representatives. Every day she is inspired by health center staff who offer exemplary care as well as patient champions who uphold CHP's mission to "advocate for affordable and accessible health services".
Kayla's passion at work lies at the intersection of health care access and racial justice; she believes that intentional and equitable investment in health centers and the vulnerable communities they serve result in community wellness and resilience that is beyond measure. She is a firm believer that centering the voices of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), diverse narratives of immigrants' experiences, and multifaceted roles women play in society is essential in the creation and implementation of health policy.
