Tell us a little about yourself
I was told I couldn’t do many things but have never allowed myself to be held back by others’ expectations. In addition to working hard to manage CF with diet, exercise and nutrition, I challenge myself to inspire others.
“I...never allowed myself to be held back by others' expectations.”
How did you get involved with Team Boomer?
Along with inspiring others, I wanted to also raise money for cystic fibrosis too.
What is your favorite Team Boomer memory?
Partnering with Team Boomer to inspire many and raise over $23,000 for CF!
What is your best fundraising tip?
Always be ready for your “elevator pitch.” You must at all times be ready to hand over information for your organization.
Why do you exercise?
I make large exercising goals to stay focused and keep myself focused. Without these goals, I find it much easier to skip workouts, treatments and meals.
