"Gunnar has been my best friend since we moved in across the street from each other in 1993. Our families remain close and my parents were involved in the foundation from day one. I followed in their path, wanting to help with a cause that has always been so close. I’ve volunteered for the foundation since High School and soon after graduating from Haverford College, I was invited to join the Young Professionals Committee. After graduating in 2010 I joined Cantor Fitzgerald as an analyst in the Corporate Department, working directly for the Chairman and CEO. I spent 3.5 years there before moving into Fixed Income Sales & Trading, working on the High Yield desk. I spent a year in research as an analyst and moved into a Fixed Income Sales role in April of 2015. I’ve participated in numerous Team Boomer races and events, while raising money and awareness for the cause. In particular, I have run two NYC marathons and raised over $30,000 for BEF in my last effort in 2013."
