I am forever grateful to the Breast Cancer Assistance Group of Monterey County for the financial and emotional support I was provided and knew I wanted to give back and help other individuals battling breast cancer like I was assisted during my time of need. Life never prepares you for a cancer diagnosis, much less two. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 and underwent a double mastectomy. In 2020, during Covid-19, I was diagnosed again and underwent radiation therapy. I also volunteer at a local breast care center and enjoy giving back to those in need.

My true love is spending time with my husband of 20 years and our two boys ages 18 and 16. We enjoy anything outdoors including camping, stand up paddle boarding, hiking, backpacking, bicycling and running. Being outside is the best therapy for me!
