Years at Donor Alliance: Ten fantastic years!

Why did you choose to work at Donor Alliance? Gratifying and noble work.

Why do you like working at Donor Alliance? I have an impact on people’s lives and am surrounded by people who work hard and care about the work they do. It is an opportunity to help people.

What does donation and transplantation mean to you? Simple, saving and enhancing someone’s life.

Do you have a direct connection to donation and transplantation? Yes. Many years ago, my best friend’s father needed a liver transplant to continue living. Fortunately he received the gift of life, a liver transplant, that has been successful for over a decade, coming up on two decades. I personally witnessed the anxiety and stress of a family in desperate need of a lifesaving organ transplant. My best friend has been able to enjoy many additional years with her father, thanks to the generosity of a donor family.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? I enjoy reading non-fiction, specifically about health, history and science. I enjoy time with my two daughters and am a certified scuba diver.
