Ben Usem is proud to serve on the Brain Research Foundation Young Leadership Board. When Ben was 12 years old, his mom was diagnosed with a benign meningioma brain tumor, which she had surgery to remove. Unrelated, nearly two years ago, his mom was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, after a persistent essential tremor began to affect her everyday life. Ben’s interest in brain research stems from these experiences in his family life, and he is eager to fundraise for BRF so researchers are able to learn more about neurological diseases and disorders.

Ben is finishing his master of accountancy degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and will be moving to Chicago to work as an associate in the audit practice at PwC in the fall. He also previously graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with his bachelor’s degree in accounting and risk management and insurance. Ben is originally from Minneapolis, MN.
