Why D&I? I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease called Hashimoto’s when I was 12 years old, and have since lived with consistent chronic pain and additional adrenal fatigue. Living with an “invisible illness” presents unique challenges in everyday life, especially working a 9-5. No one can obviously see the side-effects of invisible disease, and sometimes doubt you when you talk about your symptoms. The isolation that comes with invisible illness makes me passionate about giving a voice and platform for those who are underrepresented.
