Dr. Waterman on resilience and making a difference

UCLA Former Users Transplant News

We are very excited that TREC’s visionary director, Dr. Amy Waterman, is profiled on The M Dash: Live with purpose, MM.Lafleur’s blog celebrating strong women who make a difference. MM.LaFleur designs wardrobes for women who need to look great in public appearances and behind the scenes but don’t have the time to do a lot of shopping – which fits our director to a T. Dr. Waterman’s profile in MM.LaFleur’s “Women of the Week” column joins those of changemakers like Pulitzer Prize winner Anna Quindlen, actor/reporter Orelon Sidney, Jill Rose of PayPal, and a host of other powerful, creative women.

While in New York for a kidney donors’ event, Dr. Waterman met with MM.LaFleur’s photography team in Times Square.

“When you stand for a cause like solving the organ donor shortage,” she says, “you never imagine that you will one day be at a photo shoot, spinning around arms outstretched in Times Square, like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City.”
