Pheo Para Alliance welcomes Aimee Powell to the role of Community Engagement Specialist!
Aimee has been actively involved in the pheo/para community since her late mother’s paraganglioma diagnosis in February of 2014. The founder of the Pheo Para Project, she has also served as the Pheo Para Troopers Interim Executive Director, the Executive Director of the Pheo Para Alliance immediately following its merger with the Pheo Para Troopers, and as a member of the board of directors for SDH-Deficient Cancer Research Advocates. In addition, she currently sits on the Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) Patient Advisory Board, and volunteers with the Los Angeles Carcinoid Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (LACNETS) as a NETConnect Mentor.
“I’m honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to work formally with the Pheo Para Alliance again,” she said. “The Alliance has made great progress forward in recent years, particularly in the implementation of programs to educate and support pheo/para patients, their families, and caregivers. I’m eager to help expand on what has been accomplished as we continue to work in service to the organizational mission of community empowerment.”
Aimee lives in Ventura, California, with her son and her border collie, Roxie.
