ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

I grew up working for my father, Dr. Tim Webb, an oncologist at Genesis Cancer Center. Seeing the need each day for financial assistance outside of medical treatment and the emotional hardship attached with a cancer diagnosis made me want to do whatever I could to help alleviate those stresses.

BEST PART OF YOUR DAY:

Winding down at the end of the day with my three daughters.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

Creating the Young Men of Distinction volunteer program for Garland County high school students. The program provides training in leadership skills, community service, cancer education and awareness, as well as fundraising. This is the 10th year for the program, and 150 young men have participated with several receiving college scholarships for their service in the program.

SURPRISING FACT:

I like to write music. But the music means even more when I get to write it and perform it with my sister.

LESSONS LEARNED DURING THE PANDEMIC:

When the greater needs arise, people in the community rise, too. If I ever asked for extra donations — funding, gasoline cards, groceries, giftcards, etc. — for the patients, the community has given wholeheartedly.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

The opportunity for local cancer patients to have a refuge like the Our Promise House. Fighting cancer is hard work, and having to travel far from home can make it even harder. Added to that was the worry of finding a place to stay and how to pay for it. Our Promise started thinking of a way to take that stress off of patients and offer them a respite from worry — a place to call home when they needed it.

FAVORITE HOBBIES:

I love to play competitive tennis and learn new recipes.
