what made you want to join ACTION?  

I wanted to join ACTION after I saw the huge effect made by some of the committees that my good friend, Allison Reichhold, sat on! She was able to help create, share, and implement so many new things for our center from this community, and the impact is definitely motivating.  

What project are you most excited about moving forward in ACTION?   

I’m currently super excited about the iDECIDE tool—we’ve used it now on 2 families and it definitely helped to guide discussions. I think the tool really helped to open conversations between the family member and even more so our patients.  

Where is your favorite travel destination? 

Anywhere in Mexico! Even though it’s not good for me, I love the sun.  

What is your favorite book?   

When You Are Engulfed in Flames” by David Sedaris; he always makes me laugh so hard. 

What’s one thing that other ACTION members wouldn’t know about you?  

I love daytime court television and am in the background of a handful of Judge Mathis episodes.
