Guess served on the board for two years and is a former board president. Before that, she was a state legislator who represented northeast Anchorage. She currently works as the director of business development at Providence Health & Services Alaska. She will become the ambulatory care service line director at St. Vincent's HealthCare in Fla, according to the district release.
Guess was not up for re-election until spring 2014. The board will appoint her replacement by April 1.
The district will accept applications to replace Guess March 5-19. On March 30, the board will hold a special meeting to fill the vacancy.
