What excites you most about joining the Colon Cancer Alliance?

I am excited to work for an organization that is so supportive. It only takes one day at the Colon Cancer Alliance to realize that you work somewhere special- it is an environment where you learn and grow.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I did some amateur kickboxing for about a year before moving to DC to pursue a Master’s degree. It was terrifying and fun and all around an unforgettable experience. 

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

As a kid I wanted to be a firefighter.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you bring with you?

  • My favorite pair of sunglasses.
  • The Lord of the Rings series- because I would finally have time to read them!
  • A pillow. I can sleep almost anywhere if I have a pillow.
