You were recently honored as a Warrior in Pink for this year’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Tell us a little bit about what that means, and your experience.

Being nominated and chosen as a Susan G. Komen Warrior in Pink was an amazing honor. As an almost two year breast cancer survivor, having the privilege of such a powerful platform meant the world to me. Although the 2021 Race for the Cure had to go virtual, I was still able to spread the word about early detection and advocating for your health as a young, healthy, active woman. I am one of this year’s top fundraisers and my team, Jessica’s Support Squad, raised over $7,600. I am so very proud of all we accomplished this year to help aid Komen’s mission.
