Nicole Price, Program Manager

I have been working for BABES for 13 years as a Peer Counselor/Event Coordinator and am honored to be the Program Manager for such an amazing program for the last 6 years. BABES  is not just any job – the sisterhood and the comfort from understanding this disease together is beyond anything I can put into words. I have been living with HIV since 2000 and am passionate about working with women and children affected by HIV. I have attended some amazing trainings over the years that have made me more aware of the importance of Advocacy and Leadership for women living with HIV in our community. Through AIDS Alliance for children youth and families I  attended the VOICES Conference twice and also a graduated the 2010 Consumer Leadership Training Program. I have met many wonderful and inspiring Advocates across the country  during NAPWA conferences, Lotus Peer trainings and speakers’ trainings through Gilead Sciences.  I love to dance and my favorite foods are Mexican and Italian. Cheers!

I have been living with HIV for 27 years in August. I have been a member of BABES since 2010. I have been working as a Peer Advocate for four years. It’s been amazing four years working in this community and seeing the various experiences of people living with HIV. We’ve put on wonderful events centering the experiences of HIV positive women, providing retreats, educational trainings and support groups. I am privileged that I get to work with such gifted coworkers and be part of the BABES family. I will forever be grateful for BABES-Network.

Alora Gale-Schreck, Peer Advocate

Hi! My name is Alora and I am so grateful to be joining the BABES team as a Peer Advocate. Though I am new to BABES, I know life with HIV well. My brother and I both contracted HIV from our mother around birth. My mother has since passed away but my brother and I are both going strong. I am deeply honored to be the mama to two sweet and wild little boys, Oliver and Everitt. My husband, kids, dogs and I moved to Seattle three years ago from Boulder, Colorado for my husband to pursue an Art degree from UW. We are thoroughly enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer. After taking a few years off from working in the HIV field, I am thrilled and energized to continue working for our sisterhood of positive women. In my spare time between work and chasing my little dudes, I am often found drinking too much coffee, reading or checking out our local art scene. I am so happy to be here and can’t wait to get to know you all!
