We’re excited to introduce you to another one of our fantastic new board members this week, Laura. She is a privilege to work with, and her insight and additions to our board have already made a great impact on our organization! Read a bit more about her below.
I grew up in New Orleans and eventually discovered running through my father. Under the oaks through Audubon Park remains one of my all time favorite runs (see picture attached). I moved to Madison to pursue a PhD in chemistry and ended up staying here to be a part of a cancer drug development company called Quintessence Biosciences. In addition to being part of moving a new drug forward to patients, my work at Quintessence has given me the chance to run in some wonderful places, including fall in Boston, Washington DC during cherry blossom season, and San Francisco during the cold WI winter. Running around a new town is a great way to see sights, especially before or after spending the day in another convention center!
