Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi everyone, I interned with the Undy team at the Colon Cancer Alliance for about 4 months before coming on full time, so it's safe to say that I will soon be taking over the entire company. This has been my first professional experience since graduating from William & Mary in May of last year, and I can honestly say the bar has been set HIGH for any future job environment. I've had a blast getting to know everyone here, and I'm excited to be a part of such a great organization!
What is your favorite thing about working with the Undy team?
My favorite aspect of working with the Undy has without a doubt been travelling to the events. There is no better feeling than putting so much effort into something, and then seeing it materialize in front of you. The first Undy I attended was Tampa, and it gave me such a clear image of what this event is all about. The sense of community and support is easily visible, even when you're running all over the place trying to make sure everything runs smoothly!
Share one fun fact about yourself.
I am currently on my longest streak in recent memory of NOT being in a cast or splint of some kind. I've broken arms, legs, fingers, toes, ankles... you name it. My shortest streak? When I was 9 or 10, I roller-bladed down a slide on a dare and broke my right wrist; one day after getting that cast off I broke my left arm playing basketball. Needless to say, I got to know my doctor pretty well that year. Oh and I was Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2006. Feel free to check me on that.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
My favorite ice cream flavor varies, but it's between Ben and Jerry's That's My Jam and Phish Food.
What has been your favorite memory since starting with the Colon Cancer Alliance?
I think my favorite memory so far has been the staff retreat in Phoenix last month. You don't really know your coworkers until you've eaten together in an old school, western style steakhouse/saloon.
