Chronic Illness & Celebrating Every “Win”

I recorded this video after attending a charity Christmas-themed party–a rarity for me as a person with five illnesses. Life with chronic illness and disability can be precarious–I struggle to hang on to every moment of peace , never knowing how long the calm will last.


Hi there! I am a patient advocate, writer, and public speaker most well known for my TEDx Talk, “How to Get Stuff Done When You Are Depressed.” As someone who is juggling 5 illnesses: bipolar 2, myasthenia gravis, endometriosis, psoriasis, and asthma, I’m passionate about helping people who navigate life with both chronic physical & emotional pain. If you’re interested in hiring me to speak at your event, check out the CONTACT tab.
