Describe your role in 3 sentences: Keeping families connected with the info they need to participate in our programs.

Brainstorming with my other amazing coworkers to come up with future tactics to better spread info about Children's Cancer Connection.  

Describe yourself in 3 words: Caring, Loyal, Sarcastic. 

One talent/skill you wish you had: To understand science wayyy better than I do. Then I could make a rocket and travel to other planets!  

Random fact: I have broken 3 bones in my life....all from falling down different flights of stairs. Super clumsy. Also I hate French Toast. 

If you were an animal you would be: A manatee, because it is my favorite animal. Also it is relaxed, curious, and friendly towards others.  (And did you know they are most closely related to elephants than any other animal?)
