I was born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia, but have moved to six states in the last decade. My husband and I have four children, aged five to nine, and two fur babies. While I am a registered nurse by training, I found myself intrigued by the rare disease space and currently work for the North American sector of a Swedish biopharmaceutical company. My passion revolves around access to affordable, life-altering treatment options for rare diseases. I see Fuqua as an excellent opportunity to continue to develop my business acumen while meeting some fantastic people in the process. I'm hopeful that I will be able to use the knowledge and experience gained here as I continue in my career.
