Our Team

Katie Clarke
Co-Founder and Mentor Extraordinaire

I was diagnosed with Stage 2 her2+ breast cancer in May 2011 at the age of 45. I had a bilateral mastectomy, followed by chemo and months of Herceptin treatments. Since then, I’ve felt a new calling to mentor others who are on the breast cancer journey. I love my new BC buddies!

Kendra Olvany
Co-Founder and Chief Cheerleader

Favorite licorice? It’s a secret!

Favorite licorice? Slightly stale red vines.

Naomi Damask
Creative Rockstar

I have a love/hate relationship with breast cancer.  I hate that I was diagnosed December 2011, at the age of 36 with Stage 1 (er+, her-). I had a bilateral Mastectomy, followed by chemo. But I LOVE that there are so many silver linings that have come out of being a breast cancer survivor.  Such as, I cherish each day to the fullest, prioritize what is truly important and am mentoring others.

Five words that describe you? Creative, risk-taker, strong, compassionate, positive.
Favorite licorice?  Black licorice.  I love it in many forms – “Good and Plenty,” black jellybeans and my newest weakness soft black licorice from Whole Foods!
