After graduation, she knew she wanted to make an impact in her community and determined the best way was by supporting the financial successes of healthcare institutions.

In 2013, she began her career at Methodist LeBonheur Healthcare in the corporate finance department and found great joy serving in the healthcare industry.

“I am thrilled to join the Baptist North Mississippi team and continue the great work this team achieves to support the patients, families, and community we serve,” Dorris said. “The people who work here are truly the best part of Baptist. The culture and attitude of all who serve make this a wonderful place! The compassion of our colleagues is inspiring to those of us who get to work alongside them. Their joy of serving others creates a positive healing environment.”

“We are pleased to welcome Robyn to the leadership team,” says Brian Welton, CEO and administrator at Baptist North Mississippi. “Her strong financial background and understanding of healthcare’s financial challenges will serve us well. We look forward to her leadership and guidance as we maintain financial stability to continue to invest in new services, equipment, and facilities. This stability is vital to the families we care for and our community.”

When the opportunity to work for Baptist in Oxford presented itself, Dorris said she and her family knew it was the right move for them.

“As an Ole Miss graduate, Oxford holds a special place in my heart. Now being married with two young sons, I am excited for them to grow and love this place just as I have,” Dorris said. “As a family, we were spending every weekend we could in Oxford and would leave on Sundays wishing we could live here and raise our children in this small town where they too can grow up with a loving supporting community.”
