Jenn

Patient Leader

I have had severe Lupus and multiple other autoimmune disorders for over 20 years. It has led to me becoming disabled and leaving my career as a nurse practitioner, which I loved. I have always been passionate about advocacy for chronic illness-this was a large part of my practice as an NP. I also started and ran a local support group. Lupus and Me provides a space for camaraderie, support, validation, and accurate information. I advocate by using a variety of electronic means. It is very important to me to provide a spark of hope, and a hand in compassion to others suffering in silence, so they may know they have a voice and are no longer alone, teaching resilience along the way.
