My family and I have helped raise over $400k for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital. I graduated in 2014 from UMSL with my BA in Marketing/PR and completed my internship at Make- A- Wish Missouri. I have been married 8 years and have two kids. The Bennett Project was created when my son suggested we donate toys to children who were going thru what Uncle Ben did. Helping others will always be my passion and I'm honored to continue my brothers legacy.

I am a life-long St. Louisan, and have been involved in service to the community in one way or another for as long as I can remember.  I am a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis and currently work in Human Resources at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.  My inspiration for joining The Bennett Project board is my nephew, Drew, who was diagnosed in September of 2019 at 6 ½ years old with a malignant brain tumor.  As our family’s lives turned upside down, I looked for a way help others experiencing the same unimaginable situation.  (Drew’s a fighter and currently has No Evidence of Disease.)
