Next Non-Profit Social Event You Have On Your Calendar
The March for Babies was this past weekend and it is awesome! My twins were born at 27 weeks and I am glad to give back to such a great organization. I got involved just last year as a co-captain of a family team and will continue to take part year after year.

Non-Profit Social Event You Look Forward To Each Year
CREW Philadelphia’s Annual Holiday Luncheon. It is always held in November and is a kick off to the holiday season. The event itself offers great business networking and the charity it supports changes from year to year.

If You Could Have One Superpower, What Would It Be
To stop time for everyone but me. I tend to have a lot going on and I would like to be able to accomplish it all without sacrificing sleep!

Favorite Pastime In The Greater Philadelphia Region
Taking my family on “adventures”. Zoos, aquariums, and parks- the kids love them all. And my husband and I enjoy them too.

Best Advice You Could Offer Someone Looking To Get Involved In The Non-Profit Community
Volunteer! There are soo many organizations out there and they all need great volunteers that care about their cause to make a difference.

Favorite Childhood Memory
I grew up in Avalon, NJ so I would say spending every day that I could on the beach with my family and friends.

Fun Fact About Yourself
I guess this isn’t as much about me as my family. I have two labs Buddy and Jack Bauer. And Jack has figured out how to open the fridge to help himself when we are not watching. You can guess that at 120 lbs, he is a little overweight but most people are quite impressed with his skill.
