I blog, podcast, and do live streaming videos in support of Mental Health Awareness, and those living with Anxiety, Dissociation, & PTSD. The blog, Surviving My Past is in support of all who have survived the trauma of abuse. My platform exists to help inspire those living with mental health challenges to understand how past trauma affects daily life well into adulthood and well beyond when the trauma actually occurred.

I cover topics such as how the brain is affected by trauma, DBT Skills, CBT Skills, Self Care, the importance of creating and enforcing healthy boundaries, and generally working through how to cope with daily life as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and other types of trauma.

I became ill in 2001 and over 4 years saw 51 specialists that could not diagnose my illness. I was handed a Medline study from Christopher Reeves' Neurologist and was told to find the surgeon that performed that study. It lead me to Pittsburgh & Dr Peter Jannetta, Godfather of Modern Neurosurgery. He saved me from becoming a quadriplegic & worse. I never imagined I would develop multiple Rare Diseases at 31 yrs old, I had to learn to live a new limited life and the only way to start was with knowledge, then with helping others when I was well enough, and I have never stopped. I am a Leader in the Rare Disease Community, a Healthcare Activist, and Lobbyist. I have been fortunate to work with 1000's of Rare Disease Patients, Health and Disease Organizations and Foundations, Healthcare Stakeholders, and learned from them all. Now I try and improve Healthcare one day and project at a time.

I am all about family and love spending as much time with them as possible. My 2nd passion is bringing awareness to Type II diabetes. It is near and dear to my heart. Since being diagnosed I have lost 100 pounds.

March 2007 is a special chapter in my life. It was the month my struggle to control my diabetes took on a whole new light. I reached my goal weight set by my doctor and was able to be taken off all artificial means to control my diabetes.

My diabetes is now under control through diet and exercise. With weight-loss and exercise, Type II Diabetes can be managed or prevented. My success at controlling my diabetes has led to a new found dedication and passion in educating others on how to eat right & exercise. It brings me great joy to share my story with others and in doing so inspire them to “get up and get moving!”
I am a diabetes advocate for the American diabetes association. I am a passionate public speaker with experience speaking to youth, at gyms, offices,

Since the planning stages of Claire’s Place Foundation, Melissa Nordquist has spent countless hours working for the cause and, of course, raising her two children, Claire (the foundation’s namesake) and Ellie.  Founding CPF has been a way for Melissa to give back and share her experience with other families living with cystic fibrosis. "Many years as a single parent with a special needs child has taught me how to juggle the hours needed to care for a disease like cystic fibrosis and earn a living. We have always been blessed with a supportive family and a wonderful group of friends.  It is my hope that we can provide the same type of support to families walking this path alone."
I would be available to provide my insight as a caregiver to a child with CF and the sole breadwinner in our household for many years. My daughter is 20 yrs old now, transitioning into adulthood which has a unique and specific set of challenges for parents & patients as well. Happy to discuss/share.

I volunteered for the National Adrenal Disease Foundation for 4 years. I have learned so much about Adrenal Insufficiency by living with the disease and helping others live with the disease too. I am an expert patient. Since April 2016, I've been making educational videos, raising awareness, offering support, helping others in need (both patients and caregivers) and providing assistance where needed because there are not enough medical professionals that know enough give patients details they need and we are losing too many! I am available to assist with education and advocacy, and open to other assignments.

Due to having someone very close to me with a serious mental illness, I have been extensively trained to facilitate support groups and educate people with a mental illness and caregivers. Having suffered trauma myself, I understand both. I also strongly believe in the mind/body/spirit connection and how each greatly impacts the other. I am a great advocate and supporter.

Developing and managing online communities and handling issues, creative program development for specific needs, establishing and running a successful non-profit online, creating a "brand" for an organization, awareness months/weeks/days, utilizing social media, engaging patients, volunteer management. I have a number of conditions, a few leading to my need for a five organ transplant (full GI tract) in 2006. I founded G-PACT at the age of 23, 16 years ago. Since then we have grown to become the leading international non-profit for the conditions we cover. I was an art major with no business training. My ability to be creative, think outside the box, and recognize unique needs patients have and find ways to address them have all contributed to our strength. I express myself well through writing and art. I think patients need leaders who truly understand them and don't just hear facts. Patients want a cure, but they also want people who care, have humor, and are down to earth.
