ZERO is excited to have Riley Breen on the team! She’s our new Events Assistant who can nail all the words to “One Week” by Barenaked Ladies!
Here are five questions we asked Riley so you can get to know her better.
We know you’re awesome – but tell our ZERO Community what you bring to the table.
Coming from a social work background, I have a passion for helping people to the best of my ability. ZERO allows me to collaborate with a talented team of people that help me put my passion to work. I am constantly inspired to work hard, collaborate with my colleagues, and learn new skills that will make me a better employee.
What’s your connection to prostate cancer?
My grandfather was diagnosed in the 90’s, but fortunately he was able to beat prostate cancer by catching it in its early stages. However, I did lose my father when I was a teenager to an undiagnosed heart disease. My family and I have turned our grief into a passion for ending the disease, just like many of the families and friends affected by prostate cancer. ZERO gives me the ability to help provide resources to those fighting to end prostate cancer.
What will you be diving into first here at ZERO?
I joined ZERO a few months before our Run/Walk series begins, so I have been helping the events team prepare for another successful race season!
What fun things do you do outside of work?
I try to take advantage of living so close to DC. There’s always something to do! In the spring and summer you can catch me playing kickball on the National Mall. Otherwise, I’m exploring museums or spending quality time with my chocolate lab, Bowser, waiting for football season to start. I might’ve left New England as a kid, but I will always be a Patriots fan!
What’s in your Netflix queue right now?
Chances are you’ll find me watching a documentary or a Marvel movie before I inevitably end up binging “Gilmore Girls” again.
