What is your connection to the UW Carbone Cancer Center?
Like many people, cancer has impacted the lives of my family and friends. Many of those individuals were treated at the UWCCC. The fact that I can do my part to give back to this community and the Carbone Cancer Center is rewarding to me.

What is your favorite ELB / UWCCC event?
My favorite Cancer Center event is Munich to Madison. It’s the signature event hosted by the ELB and draws a fun group of young professionals in the Madison area. Plus, who doesn’t love beer and wine tasting?!

What is something interesting about you?
When I was a junior in high school I participated in a foreign exchange program. I moved to Esslingen, Germany and lived with a host family for six months.

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
Hands down the Hawaiian island of Kauai. It’s the perfect mix of activity and relaxation. The beaches are beautiful and the hiking along the Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon is stunning.

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  What is yours?
I hate to admit this, but I haven’t missed a season of The Bachelor or the Bachelorette since it first aired.
