Patient Leader

My son, Henry, was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2016 and later diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, specifically. I have dedicated the last 3 years in learning more about the disorder, engaging with the epilepsy community and advocating for others. I work with young adults now who have autism and epilepsy; a job that I absolutely love. I’ve made some great friends through both communities and, on the back of this, will be heading to university to study neuroscience.
