Anne Moon is a superhero.
Well, maybe in not in the comic book sense, but she’s certainly close.
Dr. Moon, 51, has dedicated her life to the mission of developing cancer therapies. Holding biology degrees from both Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Moon has leapt into several biomedical startups, and is now the Vice President of Project Management at Aduro Biotech, a pioneer in the field of cancer immunotherapy research.
For Dr. Moon, confidence and competence reinforce one another. In her eyes, competence, hard work and field expertise lead to self-empowerment in and outside of the office. Believing in your preparation then trusting your intuition — her notion of confidence — leads to risk-taking. And that leads to cutting-edge innovation. For Dr. Moon, surrounding herself with other strong, interesting women challenges her to be stronger. Simply put: confidence recognizes confidence.
Dr. Moon is interested in facts and results. That’s why her favorite treatment is the microdermabrasion facial. It removes the outer layer of dull, dead skin using an exfoliating wand. For her, microdermabrasion is an easy and effective way to maintain and brighten her skin. There’s little down time and the treatment helps with an anti-aging effects in the long term. She always uses a gentle day lotion from SkinMedica, which is non-irritating and leaves her skin plump, fresh and not greasy.
