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.
