What inspired you to run for the NPF? 

I am running the MCM in honor of my mother, Joan Birsic Dawson, who died of pancreatic cancer and all those who have been affected by this devastating disease. I am very proud to be running alongside my sister Karen for this special cause.

Favorite place to run? Or your happy place? 

I absolutely love to run in Central Park. I lived in New York City after college, so it always brings back happy memories and energizes me to be back in the park running when I visit. Also, I always enjoy running on the Washington Mall in DC. Looking at the capital building and the Washington Monument never gets old!

What’s your dream job? First job? 

I really love working at PCMA, where I’ve been the last 4 years.

What’s your favorite thing to do for fun?

My most favorite thing to do is to spend time and laugh with family and friends.

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it?  

Peanut butter!
