I am co-founder and board chair of the Jackson Chance Foundation, which partners with hospitals to provide complimentary parking passes to every family with a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We ensure that the financial burden of parking does not stand in the way of any parent being with their child.
I am most proud of the impact I’ve been able to have on others and our community— from providing employment opportunities, to seeing former team members thrive, to helping families and critically ill babies through our charity.
My current favorite quote is “Action indeed is the sole medium of expression for ethics” by Jane Addams.
My father and my mother.
The loss of my 10-month-old son in 2012 put my priorities into immediate perspective. It gave me certainty in knowing what’s important and valuable in life.
When I’m told I’m not capable of doing something, it drives me.
I appreciate mistakes and the value they provide, but I regret when they happen because I didn’t listen to my gut or trust myself.
Since becoming a mother, I made the decision to slow down at work and limit new projects. Turning down potential opportunities is my greatest challenge.
Self-aware, high integrity and kind.
