Madison, WI

I was diagnosed in 2014 shortly after moving to Wisconsin.  I had known I had a rare disease called Marfan Syndrome for 5 years so many health issues were blamed on that disease. After revealing to my new doctor that my father had AS I was sent in for testing. I was diagnosed with already fused AS and with Psoriatic Arthritis and began a biologic immediately.

I am a newlywed and a proud fur mom to 2 snugly cats and a black German Shepherd.  I am an elementary school teacher in the Madison area. I refuse to let AS, PsA, or Marfan slow me down!
