Survivor, Breast Cancer, Stage 3 Triple Negative

Beth “Vi” Peck shows her “vivacious” personality as well as her extensive background in non-profit management and leadership in everything she does. She has experienced the transformational work Project Koru provides to young adult cancer survivors firsthand, because she is one. Beth attended Camp Koru in the Fall of 2016 after a battle with stage 3 triple negative breast cancer, and attributes the woman, mother, and professional she is today to her Project Koru experience. Beth brings a diverse skill set collected over a 15-year career in nonprofit work and all levels of fundraising, as well as a deep level of love and respect from the entire Project Koru community.

Beth’s home base is East Lansing, Michigan where she raises her three (equally!) vivacious kids with her partner Ben. She is a book junkie, water baby, and her wanderlust has brought her all over the world. Reach out and say hi at
