I have been actively involved with St. Luke’s for many years, and have recently been appointed Chair of the St. Luke’s Women’s Forum. My husband and I have been thrilled to support and participate in KTM for the past several years.  Outside of St. Luke’s, we are happy to support Idaho Youth Ranch, Life’s Kitchen, Zoo Boise, University of Idaho, McCall Winter Sports Club, Bishop Kelly, and St. Joseph’s.  In the past, I have enjoyed fundraising for my children’s schools and chairing their largest fundraising event.

Like many, cancer has touched my life. After losing my mother to breast cancer at a very young age, and a recent scare with breast cancer myself, I am thrilled to be able to give back to the wonderful team at St. Luke’s, and work to make a difference in cancer research and patients’ lives.

I am an Idaho native, including graduating from Boise State University (although The University of Idaho has become family to me).  I am the proud mother of four amazing kids. We enjoy spending our free time in McCall, skiing, golfing and relaxing with family and friends.
