Her daughter, Amanda, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on May 1, 2003, when she was only 3 years old. She became involved with JDRF in 2004 because she felt that JDRF was an organization dedicated toward funding research to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Since then, her family, including her husband, Mark, her sons, Ryan (23), Tyler (21) and Justin (19), and her daughters, Amanda (16) and Ashley (14), have dedicated their time and energy toward raising awareness and funds for Type 1 Diabetes research with their family, friends and community. She has been very active in the Westchester Chapter by serving as a Board Member for many years as well as being a committee member for Walk, Gala, Golf, Peace Love Cure, Catwalk and Outreach. She also holds outreach coffees at her home several times a year with guest speakers. Her family was the 2013 Walk Honored Family and 2014 Gala Honoree.
