My speaking engagements, media interviews, and books on chronic pain inspire patient engagement filled with HOPE & motivation. I have been battling chronic pain since 1997. First with endometriosis. Then in 2002, I developed Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), RA, hypothyroid, migralepsy, TMJ and more. My content creation offers practical advice, tips and tricks for better daily living and resolutions to the challenges of living with chronic pain.

In addition to being a "professional patient" living with MS and chronic pain, I have a varied career that includes writing, marketing, web design, education, and consulting. My perspective as a patient makes me particularly interested in helping businesses in the healthcare industry with their messaging and methods of reaching out to, interacting with, and supporting patients.

I've been writing and consulting about diabetes for over eight years. After being diagnosed, in 2008 I started a comprehensive research project to understand how diabetes would affect me, my family and how I could also help others understand my findings. This led to starting four blogs all devoted to diabetes for kids, adults, seniors and even pets. At one time, we had over three million followers, a 6 day a week talk show on Blog Talk Radio for over two years and we received numerous awards and proclamations from the City of Clovis, California for our work online and in the community as it relates to diabetes. We also hosted a Livestream event for 4 years where we had over 250,000 attendees.

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.
