Patient Leader

Hi! I am a 33-year-old woman living in NYC. I was born with Blau Syndrome, an autoimmune disease that primarily causes arthritis in every joint in my body (but also has eye and skin involvement). Since I've been sick since birth, I feel exceptionally well-adjusted, and I am fortunate to be able to say that I've not allowed my illness to stop me from doing anything I want, like going away to college, getting a Master's degree, playing the drums, and working full-time in hospital operations management (mostly oncology). I live independently in an apartment with my dog, and it is my goal to help as many people as possible, navigate through chronic illness. Check out: #sickpeopledoingthings
