Cecilia Tripp, Communications Coordinator
Cecilia was born and raised in St. Louis, MO where she grew up with her 7 siblings. Growing up in the mid-west, in a big family, taught her everything she knows about hard work, not shying away from competition, and the importance of being a genuine person. Now that she lives in Los Angeles these are the traits that she carries with her in every thing she does. In 2014, Cecilia graduated from Missouri State University with a BFA in Acting. Shortly after graduation she packed her bags and headed West. She is honored to be a part of the Cancer Companions team. With faith being such an integral part of who she is, she can not wait to help spread God’s message of love and hope to all those on their cancer journeys.
