Bit about me!

and this wonderful journey

Five fun facts: my favorite food is Mac & Cheese (#noshame), I love to sing, I love yoga, I got a hole in one in golf when I was 18 (I played in college), and my favorite place in the world is the beach... I could spend hours there!

I grew up in the suburbs of NJ, just outside of NYC. I was born 1994 and I'm the youngest of three sisters. At the age of 15 or 16 I remember having my first seizure but didn't know what it was, I honestly thought I was having a psychic moment and an awful headache. It wasn't until February 2018 that I was diagnosed with epilepsy. That took a while to diagnose... I was shocked to find out that I likely have had epilepsy my whole life and mostly relieved to finally know what had been plaguing me all of these years.

I consider myself an advocate for people like me who suffer from epilepsy and that's what I intend to be through Epilepsy True. With a bit of creativity, intellect, compassion, and humor we can create a community where we learn and grow together. I welcome all, whether you have epilepsy, or just want to learn more about this curious brain activity. Being aware is so important and awesome! So please comment, subscribe, and join in!

I look forward to getting to know you!
