Activism & Media

Diagnosed with MS at 29 years old, I have since made it my mission to show that you can live an active and full life with multiple sclerosis through diet, medication and positivity. I do this through my blog, but also through volunteering and speaking engagements. Well and Strong with MS was named one of the “Top 10 Blogs for MS” by Medical News Today and ranked #8 of #25 Top Multiple Sclerosis Blogs by Health Labs in 2017.
