The two things that have affected my life most are seeing what’s possible through technology and the impact cancer had on our family. Both have shaped my mission for redefining what’s possible in the nonprofit sector.
In July 2016, I proudly assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer at Testicular Cancer Foundation. TCF provides education and support to young men to raise awareness about testicular cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer among males ages 15–34. This new role allows me to further the goals of the young adult cancer movement, by leveraging the technology expertise that makes it possible.
For six years, I served as Co-Founder and COO of Stupid Cancer, overseeing; operations, eCommerce, IT, social strategy, mobile health, relationship management and more. During these years, I built expertise in creating and engaging a global community. Social media integration, digital health platform development, CRM design/implementation and broadcast communications became our tools to mobilize a community and accelerate the organization’s impact.
I’m excited to have been named the 2013 YNPN-NYC "Nonprofiteer of the Year." I received my BA in Communications from Farmingdale State College and recently relocated from NYC to Austin.
