About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Mom
Location Calgary, Canada
Introduction My journey began when I was 18 years old and starting having symptoms of low back, wrist, hand, foot and ankle pain. I was later diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Psoriatic Arthritis.I have severe osteoarthritis in my left hip now requiring a hip replacement. I was also recently diagnosed with mild/moderate osteoarthritis in my right hip. Although I am challenged on a daily basis with my arthritis, my life is filled with love and support from family and friends. My husband and I have 3 amazing children that keep our lives filled with love and excitement.I first started my “Joints in Motion” journey 2 years ago when I started training for my first marathon. Last October with the support of family and friends I was able to complete a full marathon in Athens Greece with the “Joints in Motion” training team. While training and reaching my own personal goals I was able to raise money for the Arthritis Society and give back to an amazing cause and be an inspiration to other people effected with Arthritis.
