Elevate Health Staff
Sandra Johnson, office manager, has worked in medical clinics in a variety of administrative capacities for more than 25 years.

Joeey Thom comes to Elevate Health with 16 years experience as a certified medical assistant in cardiology, family, and internal medicine clinics. Joeey thoroughly enjoys the clinical aspects of her work, such as drawing blood, administering immunizations, and providing procedural assistance. Patients find her confidence and openness comforting. (“Just ask me!” she says.) She appreciates being there for everyone, from infants to elders. She also thrives on finding organizational and administrative efficiencies to fully support the primary care providers.
Joeey, a Nevada native, has been in Oregon since 1998. As much as she enjoys her clinical work, her young son Jamison is “her everything.” They enjoy camping, park visits and movies together. She is in awe of his compassion, and his vocabulary.
Even independent of her son, she is a self-avowed fan of anything Minion, having an “embarrassingly large collection of Minion stuff.” And if you don’t know about the Minions, just ask her.
Grace Lilly, a familiar presence assisting patients on the phone and on arrival, is devoted to the study and practice of health. The daughter of a nurse, she has developed a focused keen interest in women's health. She enjoys supporting patients and appreciates the varied work in a small independent clinic.
Grace until recently trained and performed with Cirque du Soleil. She is highly computer literate, and is a fan of solo "gaming" and supporting indie game developers.
