What is your greatest achievement?
By far my greatest achievement is my family. My husband and I have raised 3 outstanding young men. There have certainly been other personal/professional achievements along the way associated with education, certifications and roles but what I am most proud of is our family.
Why did you commit to being a BigWig?
As a member of the healthcare community, and as a nurse, I see the impact of breast cancer every day. When I visit the Missouri Baptist Cancer Center, or speak with staff from our Breast HealthCare Center I am reminded of the far reaching need for mammograms and breast health education. As a BigWig, I look forward to bringing together the MoBap community of staff, patients, and survivors to raise funds for early screening, compassionate care and continued research.
Where might we find you with your pink wig on?
On October 21st you can find me decked out in pink alongside my MoBap colleagues celebrating “Pink Out” day!
