About: Lisa

I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at 23. I had never even heard of the disease. It was a very scary time. Searching the internet made it even more scary. But connecting with others who could help me understand what was happening and give me support made it so much easier to deal. Now, having lived with arthritis for 14 years, I hope to help others navigate this scary disease. I am living proof that you can still live your life and achieve your goals. I have had a full-time job, I have run marathons and triathlons, and I have become a mom to a beautiful daughter all while managing RA.
