I am an 11-year, early-onset, stage IV colon cancer survivor.  I’m a former special education teacher and own my own event planning business. In addition to my career, I have served on non profit boards as alumni chair, fundraising chair and president. I joined COLONTOWN in 2016 and took on a leadership role in 2018.  In 2019, I attended an Empowered Patient Leader seminar and continue to take on more responsibilities to support new members of COLONTOWN.

I use my involvement to give back to the community for the support it has given me.  Since joining COLONTOWN, I have become a better advocate for myself and enjoy empowering others.

In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, kayaking, travel, and spending time making memories with my husband, four adult children and fur babies.
