I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in my community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).
In 2018, I was selected as one of Pittsburgh's 50 Finest; it was as an amazing experience and I met several wonder people who I now call friends. I raised $11,000 though various fundraising events with no corporate donations or sponsorship. In 2019, I participated in Pittsburgh's Man and Woman of the Year, although I didn't win I raised $10,000 in just 10 weeks.
I was excited and honored when I was asked to be part of the first Finest All Stars. I'm looking forward to many upcoming fun fundraising events and the gala!
A little about me. I graduated from Point Park University and I currently serve on the Alumni Board of Directors; prior to that, I was the board of Pittsburgh Young Professionals where I chaired the Events Committee. Originally from Ellwood City, I live in downtown Pittsburgh In my "retro" apartment.

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
