Director of Occupational Health
Dedicated and motivated, Travis Brooke joined Cascade Health in 2010, committed to increasing awareness of work and community health programs designed to enhance workers’ quality of life and increase health and safety.
He specializes in identifying employer’s immediate needs and coming up with wellness programs and cost-saving solutions.
In his spare time, Travis enjoys spending time with his family, golfing, skiing, volunteering and supporting the Oregon Ducks.
Workers Action Program Manager
An occupational therapist for 16 years, Travis Hoffman manages our Workers Action Program, which focuses on the rehabilitation of injured workers. He joined Cascade Health in 1999.
Previously, Travis worked as a traveling occupational therapist and had the opportunity to work at health centers all along the East Coast.
“My favorite thing about occupational therapy is getting to know and learning about the people we treat – their hobbies, interests, kids, plans for the future. It seems as though I’m constantly making new friends,” he says.
He also enjoys the challenges of his job, determining which of the many joint, muscle, and nerve conditions a patient might have, prescribing the appropriate treatment and exercise, and seeing improvement.
Travis enjoys time with his family, camping, hunting, fishing, golfing, and riding four wheelers at the dunes and on mountain trails.
DIRECTION for Employee Assistance Manager
A social worker for more than 20 years, Laurel Anderson currently serves as our bereavement coordinator. She has worked with adults, children and families in various settings, and has a rich background as a counselor and support group leader.
Laurel helps people cope with issues like grief, loss, trauma, stress, anxiety, depression and self-care. Grieving is a natural and important part of adjusting to and coping with death and in its many forms. In her free time, she likes to spend time with family and friends, and loves to garden, hike, spend time at the Oregon coast, read, and travel.
Administrative Director and MedExpress Manager
Easygoing and patient-focused, Chooch Vanis has been managing emergency personnel for 20 years. For the last ten years, he has also been heavily involved with Cascade Health Solutions’ project management.
His background includes emergency services, temporary staffing, primary care clinic management, and special projects. As administrative director, his job is to place the right people, in the right place, at the right time to fulfill the heath needs of our community.
“It’s rewarding to have such a positive impact on people – patients, staff members, businesses, and the public as a whole,” he says.
When he’s not working, Chooch vacations with his family, coaches soccer for his two daughters, and volunteers for a local fire district.
