In short, I am a working mom who never sits down. I have a husband, two boys, and a black lab puppy. We are a very active and sports-crazed family where “busy is the new normal” but we consciously take time to savor the moments. I am a Foot and Ankle Surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine and three years ago I founded my own company, STRIDE. When I’m not with my family or at my office, you will find me out running around campus at Stanford University. Running is my passion and my “me time”. I have completed 5 marathons and am getting close to a qualifying time for one of my lifetime bucket-list items, running the Boston Marathon.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is also a bucket-list item and doing it for a great cause makes the experience that much more meaningful. As a member of Dream Team 2014, I have chosen to raise funds for an organization called CARE. This international organization was founded in 1945 and works in 84 countries whose mission is to defend human dignity and fight global poverty. One of the root causes of poverty is women and girls’ lack of control over their lives. But once empowered by education, economic opportunity, and freedom from violence, a woman can be a catalyst for positive change in her own family and in her community. Please visit www.care.org for more info.
I invite you to join me in supporting this outstanding organization.
Huge thanks and sincere appreciation for your support,
