What is your connection to the UW Carbone Cancer Center?
I became interested in the research the cancer center was doing and began attending lab tours after my mom was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2012. Around that same time I began working with the Andy North & Friends event, which introduced me to the amazing work of UWCCC on a much deeper level.

What is your favorite ELB / UWCCC event?
I may be biased but, the Andy North and Friends event. It’s such a spectacular event and it raises so much money, all of which goes directly to research at UWCCC. So although all the money stays local, in the end the research will be felt worldwide by those effected by cancer.

What is something interesting about you?
I spent 9 months traveling the country, living out of a minivan with my husband, 5 year old son, and two year old daughter. Interesting doesn’t even begin to describe it!

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
All around favorite is South Africa – it was wonderful to be exposed to such a different way of life and take in the magnificent scenery.
Road-trip adventure favorite is Ocean Beach, CA – it was such a laid back atmosphere filled with the most eclectic group of individuals. I can’t wait to go back!

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  What is yours?
Facebook Marketplace (where you buy and sell things). I love looking through all the items for sale and I LOVE trying to find things in my house that I can sell. If I sell toys my son year old makes me split the money with him!
