About me

I am a curious life-long learner with a focus on helping others try and achieve their goals while working to achieve my own. I have been trained as a scientist and spent my career working to bring innovators in life science together with partners who can help bring their solutions to patients through business and corporate development. I love my work and my profession because I am surrounded by smart dedicated people who are trying to do good in this world. I am intensely proud to have helped two amazing human beings (my children) through their childhoods into adulthood teaching them that if they can find their passion, life and learning can be fun and rewarding even if challenging.

Why am I doing this?

I would never have chosen to do this under normal circumstances. It is too far outside my comfort zone. I have watched others commit to physical training for a cause and admired them from afar and contributed to help them reach their fundraising goals. When I was made aware of this opportunity, I turned my attention inward and thought that I am fortunate enough to be healthy enough to train to do this climb. I also have spent decades working with scientists and business people striving hard to find new treatments for cancer. We all have loved ones touched by these diseases. We are also at a crucial time when our knowledge of cancer biology is exploding. What better time to raise money for basic cancer research that can be translated to real treatments for our loved ones?
