I come from a family of four and three of us each have a different form of Epilepsy. I started my advocacy life at sixteen being the first group of high school students asked by the Epilepsy Foundation to participate in Kids Speak Up in Washington D.C. to educate congress and legislators on Epilepsy about the issues that we with the horrible disorder encounter. I started the first support group for teens in Houston as well. My passion in life is to educate on Epilepsy and to mentor girls on how we with this disorder can be productive in society and are not alone. I have been a contributor to the Living Well with Epilepsy blog during the past year and am looking forward to the next chapter of my blog with this community. Based in Texas.Read Epilepsy and Family
