Artist

By day, (and sometimes nights and weekends) I’m the Sr. Graphic Designer for CorEvitas, LLC.

In my spare time, I also enjoy photography, painting, paper quilling, quilting, sand art, doodling, folding gum wrappers into weird shapes without thinking about it, and writing “wash me” in calligraphic fonts on car windows.

Writer

I blogged my entire clinical trail for the first-ever pill form of treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (Fingolimod). I was discovered by a pharma exec and was invited to be interviewed on stage at a large industry conference. Who knew that my blog would become recognized as the first-ever clinical trial participant blog and I would be dubbed “the godmother of clinical trial bloggers” by certain pharma industry thought leaders?

Besides covering the MS news in a weekly article for Healthline.com from 2011-2014, I also like to write about my personal adventures and reflections.

Speaker

I became a patient speaker on behalf of Novartis after my clinical trial ended. I traveled the country, sharing my patient experience with others living with MS.

Once I realized I loved public speaking and longing to get the word out about how research changed my life, I began speaking at pharma industry events to share my patient perspective.
