“Finally lining up with my true passion at AULA set me on a path where I do meaningful, fulfilling work helping cancer patients and their families across the country thrive in the face of their diagnoses. The knowledge and skills I learned at AULA pointed me towards my passion for positive psychology and resiliency training, which are the underpinnings for our program… My experience at AULA had a profoundly positive impact on my life.”

Kristin is the founder and co-president of Pillars4Life, which educates and empowers cancer patients to manage their disease more effectively and to live fully. Kristin’s interests include running, cooking, and snow skiing.
