Full Speed Ahead!

I am excited to announce that I recently became a full time employee of the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA). The main purpose of my job is to expand Ride Ataxia with the thought that it might become a revenue stream for the organization with rides all over the country. I could not be more excited about this opportunity to continue pushing the limits and seek my passion full time!

My first week at work was a benchmark week for me. I spent the week in Tampa with Juliann Green (FARA development officer) and Jennifer Farmer (FARA executive director) and we had a crazy week full of presentations and meetings capped off by the taping of a television show (NBC Daytime) which aired in 99 different markets all across the country!

I can't wait to see what the future holds for me personally as we work together to raise awareness and research funds for this important cause. The cure is out there...
