YPACS Co-Chairs

Eugenie Morton | Co-Chair

I joined YPACS in October 2022, and starting in 2023, I joined the Membership Committee as Lead of Volunteerism, so I love going to ACS events with other YPACS volunteers! I joined YPACS, because my family was also impacted by cancer, and like all of you, I want to see it gone for good.

Outside of YPACS, I live in Seattle and work at Proliance Surgeons. A fun fact about me is that while I grew up in the Seattle area, but I have also lived in the New Orleans, Chicago, and DC metropolitan areas, so if you have any connections to any of those places, come chat with me!

McKenna Pho | Co-Chair

I joined YPACS in November 2022 and jumped right in with the Marketing Committee, helping to co-lead the inaugural honoree program for the signature event last year. I joined YPACS for a few reasons: first, cancer has significantly impacted my family, so I am passionate about ACS and the opportunities/funding it offers; second, I wanted a way to network with other professionals in the Seattle area!

I have worked at Seattle Children’s for almost 8 years, and am currently the Manager for Executive Administration. I hold a Master’s Degree in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, which is the study of human behavior in the workplace. I have lived in Washington state my entire life, but moved from the east side of the state to Seattle 8 years ago with my husband & two cats. Outside of work and YPACS, I enjoy trying new coffeeshops, traveling, & going to Seattle Kraken games!
