with Amy Thomasson, CAE

In this episode of Six Degrees of Associations, we welcome Amy Thomasson, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Cure SMA. Cure SMA leads the way to a world where everyone impacted by spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is empowered to lead independent, successful, and fulfilling lives. Amy shares her journey from the traditional for-profit world to associations and the fulfillment she has found in mission-based work. She discusses her transition, the importance of aligning a career with personal values, and the rewarding experience of working directly with patients and their families in her leadership role with Cure SMA. Amy’s inspiring personal story of overcoming health challenges and defying expectations serves as a reminder of the power of resilience and determination. Join us as we explore the intersection of purpose, associations, and making a meaningful impact!
