I am currently the Director of Patient Advocacy and Program Management for Mended Hearts and Mended Little Hearts. I am also your community manager here! I live in the Pittsburgh, PA area with my three children. My adult daughter and my grandson live in nearby. Trenton (My third child) was born with a congenital heart defect and I have been actively involved in Mended Hearts and Mended Little Hearts since 2009. I founded the local chapter of MLH of Southwestern, PA, held the lead coordinator role there for 4 years, was the national growth and development coordinator, the national vice president for MLH, and held an executive committee member role on the Mended Hearts Board of Directors.
