By sharing my history of living and thriving with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, I offer hope and practical advice for other sufferers of disease and chronic pain.

After struggling my whole life with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and losing both parents, I decided to take my health into my own hands and explore alternative medicine.

Through a complete lifestyle change, I was able to heal myself. With whole foods, exercise, and a mindset shift, I have finally started living my authentic life. Life’s a Journey, Are You Packed? takes you from my initial diagnosis through the failures of traditional medicine, grief and loss, and all my “ah-ha” moments on the road to being healthy.

Laugh and cry with me as I take you through the effects this diagnosis has had on my life and the long, difficult search for alleviation and treatment. My hope is that you’ll make the choice to join me on this journey to health after you read my story.

If you have struggled with an autoimmune disease, the loss of loved ones, raising a family, caring for ill parents, or losing weight, this book is meant for you.

The Story Behind the Story

After suffering my whole life with JRA and finally finding the answers I’d been searching so long for, I wanted to share it with everyone and anyone. Writing a book just seemed like the perfect way to spread the word. I want my story to help people change their lives so they can start truly living. It’s never too late.
