Expertise

I am a speaker, writer, and advocate who uses many platforms to raise awareness for people with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). As a former college athlete and current professional model, I have a compelling story that is entertaining and emotional.
I have testified on bills in California State Health Committees, met with congressional representatives, spoken on panels, and given talks at both public and private events about living with AS. Additionally, I use my fashion image as a platform to drive awareness.
I am comfortable engaging with members of the media, pharmaceutical companies, and nonprofit organizations about all topics related to chronic disease, including lifestyle and disease management, legislation, education and awareness.
Given these experiences and more, I am equipped to offer a range of services including public speaking (able to travel), being a poster child for campaigns, writing columns or blog posts, participating in fashion shows or art photo shoots, and more.
