Patient Education Team 

Landi - Assistant Patient Educator

Landi is a proud Northern California native having grown up in Happy Camp and living in many of the NorCal's beautiful communities. Growing up she enjoyed biking, camping, swimming and hiking in the areas around Happy Camp, but she found her life's passion for helping people when she began working as a receptionist at a local doctor's office. Once she began her life as a wife and mother she relocated to Susanville in 1991 with her family. Once there, she enjoyed working at being a mom and housewife until her two sons were in school. At that time, she accepted a job at Banner Lassen Hospital in the Patient Financial Services department where she learned the ins and outs of insurance processing and medical finances. During her time at Banner Lassen, Landi was awarded for and recognized as a team player, positive force and trusted employee.

After the Sierra Pacific Industries Mill closed in Susanville, she and her family were presented with the opportunity of choosing a new path in life and home. They quickly decided to stay in the North State and considered either Anderson or Shasta Lake City, eventually choosing to relocate to Shasta Lake City. Shortly after settling in to their new home in 2004, Landi accepted a position at Shasta community Health Center as a Visit Coordinator, a position that she held for over 5 years until she accepted the newly created Patient Portal Coordinator position. In this position, Landi helped to launch and maintain the patient centered Shasta Health Connect online platform.

Landi is now a happy member of the Patient Education & Health Promotion team where she, among other things, helps organize and maintain patient education workshops. In recent years, she has become a Certified Master Trainer for the Stanford developed Chronic Disease Self-Management Programs and has realized her joy for helping participants through their self-management journeys. She is also a Certified Leader for the Center of Mind-Body Medicine. When not helping SCHC fulfill its mission of serving the underserved, Landi enjoys pursuing various entrepreneurial endeavors to expand her experiences working within the Redding community. She continues this interest by finding opportunities to brighten the days of her friends and family through organizing numerous outings and gatherings for them to delight in. When in need of some personal time, she adores curling up with her beloved dog, Rosco, and a good book.

Megan - Patient Educator

Megan grew up in the Bay Area where she developed a love for learning about people from many different cultural backgrounds and traditions. This prompted her to study Anthropology at San Jose State University. After obtaining her Bachelors Degree in 2015, Megan decided to take her passion for knowledge about different cultures and move to South Korea to teach English for a year. In the summer of 2016, Megan left to teach English to kindergarten through high school students and got to travel around Korea, meeting people from all over the world. The experience was challenging at first, but very rewarding. After the year was over, Megan decided to come back to the Bay Area to work with marginalized groups in Santa Clara County. 

This next passion project involved working as a Program Coordinator for a friendly visitor program for socially isolated older adults. Advocating on their behalf, providing them with community resources and referrals, and becoming a “friend” they could count on became one of Megan’s joys. This work with older adults and finding the gaps/disparities in the services they needed developed her eagerness to continue working within the community. 

Megan relocated to Redding in 2019 and began working at SCHC as a Patient Educator. She is a Certified Facilitator for the Stanford developed Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. She is excited to continue in her role as an educator and speaking with community members about their needs. In her personal time she enjoys reading, and taking her dog, Loki, for adventures around Redding.
