What is your connection to the UW Carbone Cancer Center?
My concern for the rapid growth of cancer lead me to search for a way to get involved with the Carbone Cancer Center. I have 2 young children and a strong love for my family, friends and community. Cancer rates continue to rise and I want to do my part to help find a cure so we all have the opportunity to live a long, fun-filled life.
What is your favorite ELB / UWCCC event?
My favorite ELB /Carbone Cancer Center event is hands down the private lab tours we organize for the public. The ability to experience first-hand the amazing research happening in Madison at the UWCCC is absolutely fascinating to me. However, our two signature events, Andy North Trivia and Kickoff For Cancer, are both a blast and I look forward to planning them and attending them every year.
What is something interesting about you?
I love the outdoors! You’ll find me waterskiing on lakes all summer long, enjoying downhill skiing during the winter, and playing sports and other outdoor activities with my family throughout the rest of the year.
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
I love to travel and have been lucky to have explored 11 countries so far. I look forward to exploring many more but so far my favorite place to visit would be tied between Cape Town (South Africa) or the coasts of Costa Rica.
Everyone has a guilty pleasure. What is yours?
Eating Theo’s Chocolates (Seattle), munching on bacon wrapped cheese curds from Heritage Tavern (Madison), or devouring pizza from Salvatore’s Tomato Pies (Madison) are on the top of my list! Not exactly healthy however, isn’t there a saying about everything in moderation….?!?
