About MS Insight
The MS Insight Team
"I am a life-long adventurer, author, speaker and advocate within the global MS community. When I discovered that I had MS, I began a mission to learn as much as I could about MS and use MS as a turning point in MS life to do everything I could to live life to it’s fullest. I pushed myself to start running, mountain climbing, and learning as much as I could about MS. I was fortunate that new treatments helped me and I wanted to share what I had learned. I honed my speaking skills and started the non-profit which is now MSinsight.org. I have relapsing remitting MS."

My expertise and passion is working to create the best possible educational experiences for healthcare. I work with medical centers and non-profit medical associations to provide online education for doctors and allied healthcare providers."
