My passion is to write, research and share information to empower others in the multiple sclerosis community. I write for MultipleSclerosis.net, MultipleSclerosis News Today, and my personal blog InsideMyStory.com. My interests in MS research led to my role as a merit reviewer with the Patient Centered Outcome Reach Institute, and the DoD. I am associated with the Accelerated Cure Project for MS and the PCORI funded Patient Powered Research Network (PPRN) and I serve as the Lead Patient Representative and Chair of the iConquerMS™ Governing Board.
I take pride in disseminating credible information to my communities whether it be in small in-person or one-on-one conversations, online within patient forums, through Facebook groups, or at national conference presentations. Knowledge is meant to be shared and I am fortunate to be afforded the opportunity to do so. I remain open to new ideas and opportunities for advocacy work and patient representation in all areas of the MS community
