Ms. White discovered IPPF while in the hospital in 2011, thanks to one of her dear friends. It quickly became an invaluable avenue to acquire knowledge about PV, connect to a dynamic community of patients and clinicians and discover pathways for advocacy. After attending the Annual Patient Conference in 2019 with her aunt, it was clear that it was time to expand her engagement with IPPF so Ms. White applied for the Board of Directors.
Ms. White brings over 25 years of experience in nonprofit, education and healthcare sectors to the IPPF Board. She is currently the Operations Manager for the Center for Genetic and Genomic Medicine and the Institute for Child Development at Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH). Working for HMH is a full-circle experience for Ms. White each day. In 2011 she was a patient in the ER on the campus where she now works. Ms. White resides in Hackensack, New Jersey.
