“I am excited to join the team at Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital, where their focus is on promoting a healthy community,” said Howes. “I look forward to being part of the Grace Cottage team. I love providing parents the tools they need to feel confident raising their child, and guiding children and adolescents as they become healthy adults, physically and emotionally.”
