Executive Director

Never fear, I am here to slay the dragon”, says the prince. This is the story of old with one hero who comes to rescue those in distress. The reality is you are the true heroes and I am excited to hear your stories.

My story, I am a PNW native born and raised. I have worked with blood cancer and mental health non-profits prior to joining the NWSF. Supporters from the prior organizations have left imprints on my life and career. I am looking forward to the imprints that we will make together to improve the lives of those are fighting sarcoma, survived and remembering those we have lost. 

Other things I do: Travel, camp, craft specialty holiday ornaments and vintage jewelry art, substitute teach dance (retired dancer), host an annual Halloween party and love to socialize with my friends and family.

Favorite quote about leadership: It is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen.

I look forward to working with you and I am excited to hear your stories.
