Romi first learned about Tower Cancer Research Foundation from her mother-in-law Beth, who is the current President of the Magnolia Council. Having attended the Spirit of Hope Luncheon and The Tower of Hope Gala many times, it became clear to Romi what an important organization this was to be a part of. That, along with having had many family members affected by cancer, Romi was motivated to get further involved, and join Cancer Free Generation.
Romi was born and raised in Los Angeles. After attending The University of Santa Barbara for her degree in Sociology, Romi returned home and began her career in the hospitality industry working at several luxury hotels as their event coordinator. After starting a family with her husband Eric, Romi left the working world and now enjoys being a full-time mom to her two boys, Max and Spencer.
