Originally a Physical Education teacher and athletics coach, she decided to make the switch to fighting cancer in 2019 after her own battle.

Half New Yorker and Half Seattleite, Addie comes to LLS most recently from Weill Cornell Medicine in NYC, where she developed a highly personalized approach to fundraising. She also holds a Master’s degree from Columbia University in Nonprofit Management. Addie's mission is to save the world, one funded cure at a time, and this stems from her personal journey with disease. At the age of six, Addie was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune disease that rendered her bald. While she lives her life as a proud bald woman, her experience with Alopecia reminds her that there are others with life inhibitors that are far beyond her own experience. Addie is passionate about fundraising and looks forward to inspiring others in the LLS mission.
