THE STORY:

I am honored and excited to be Captain of Team GLA for our Tough Mudder Series. As a 30-year non-profit career executive, i was considering multiple opportunities and doing my homework before deciding which organization to lead. When I was introduced to the Global Lyme Alliance, I knew immediately it’s where I belonged.       

My decision to join GLA was made easy for three primary reasons. 

One, they are the global leader in lyme research & education and I like to be part of a winning team.    

Two, I was instantly attracted to the passionate board, staff and support base and I believe passion drives progress.   

And three, I was immediately drawn to their tireless commitment to changing the paradigm of lyme disease through research, awareness & education. In my experience the three keys to success in beating disease.   

Having spent the last 20 years leading organizations that help patients overcome the injustices associated with neglected, underfunded, and stigmatized illnesses… and there is no bigger injustice in the infectious disease world than the injustice lyme disease patients face everyday… no definitive diagnostic test, limited treatment options and minimal government support, I knew I could help GLA continue impacting patient lives everyday.
I am excited about the opportunities that lie before us. We are on the cusp of great breakthroughs and the Global Lyme Alliance has positioned itself as the leader, and will serve as the catalyst, to drive change and shift the paradigm of how lyme disease is tested, treated, and eventually cured.   

Through the marriage of technology, science, medicine, and public/private partnerships – along with organizations like GLA representing the best interests of patients – working together great advancements can and will be made.
So as we continue to work with experts and leaders in the field to ensure progress continues… we need your partnership too! Your support will allow GLA to continue its ground breaking programs that are emulated by so many other lyme groups.   You can count on us to invest your donations in funding great minds, innovative ideas and results driven efforts for the benefit of tens of thousands of lyme disease patients and their families.   And, your generosity we will enable us to achieve our ultimate goal: eradicating lyme disease! Please consider supporting Team GLA or if you are bold enough, join Team GLA as a Tough Mudder, we would happy to have you!
