May 5th, 2018 was my first acute pancreatitis attack, a second followed two months later and CP became a life changing event.  My personality strives to bring a positive outlook on events that happen to me and the NPF is one of those positives now.  I work at CU Boulder as an accounting manager, I have an MBA, a BA in Theology, a Certificate in Pastoral Ministry, 300 hours of CPE in Hospital Chaplaincy, and a curious mind in general.  I moved around quite a bit and have volunteered in my communities versus having a family of my own.  I look forward to partnering with the NPF and building the Colorado Chapter.
