  • Photography

    At 5 years old, I fell in love with the art of photography. While on a trip, my grandmother handed me a camera and I ended up taking better photos than any other adult there. That one moment started me on a journey that is such a blessing in my life.

That would be the start of what would turn out to be a very long journey trying to find a medical professional who would listen to me, my symptoms and take it all seriously. 7 years later, with a whole lot of symptoms and a compromised quality of life, I was finally properly diagnosed.
