Former Miss Philadelphia winner Julia Rae and I decided to join forces and start the Making It Matter Podcast and discuss all things cystic fibrosis (and I guess a few other things too). Want to talk about our experiences in dealing with the disease and how we have managed to overcome challenges our way. Beyond that, we love hearing extraordinary stories of courage from anyone with CF. We want you to know that we are making it matter along with every single person out there with CF.

Our first episode focuses on the move from college to the “real world.” Listen to Julia’s plans now that she has just graduated from Fordham University. I also look back on my life immediately after graduating and a few of the challenges I faced.

Our Making It Matter segment features the incredible Nick Talbot and his summit of Mount Everest. Check out his amazing story HERE.
