About Me: I grew up in Westchester County and have lived in Chappaqua with my husband, a pediatrician, for over 40 years. Our beautiful daughters, Audrey and Sandy, complete our family. I owe them for allowing me to see their relationships in action. Leaders in what they do, I have been blessed to meet the other people in their worlds. They lead by example with unselfish giving and enthusiastic dedication. I was a stay at home mom until the girls were in high school when I worked as a High School Guidance Counselor for over 20 years. I love spending time with family and close friends. I enjoy tennis, knitting, ice-skating, reading, travel, baking, and hiking.
Why I Got Involved: Back in 2011 when Kate and Sandy had the idea for The Wig Exchange, I was their first donor. It was so great to be a small part of what has become such a big organization. I will never forget going to Kate’s house and handing over my wig, hats, and scarves that I thankfully no longer needed. I am a two time cancer veteran and am so grateful to the incredible people I met along my journey. I hope my experience can help make it slightly easier for those newly diagnosed with cancer.
What makes the Wig Exchange Special: The personal relationships between our Client Coordinators and the newly diagnosed women who they are helping are priceless. Having that connection to someone who has been through a similar experience is invaluable. On the donor side, I am always so inspired by the kind words that wig donors share with us. They are genuinely happy to have a tangible way to help others who are experiencing the many challenges that follow a cancer diagnosis.
