Northern CA Hub Leader, Support Coordinator
My start with gastroschisis began very different than most. I had never heard the word gastroschisis until my daughter was 18 months old. This is because my daughter was adopted. From the second i heard what she was born with, the researching began and to this day has not ended. My daughter was left with short gut syndrome from gastroschisis. This left her dependent on IV nutrients until she was almost 5. I am located in Northern California and have 4 children ages 5 and under. Between kids school and hockey, i enjoy meeting new families at the local hospital and hope to help as many as I can. I have a passion for families that are affected by gastroschisis and i hope to help as many people as possible threw my role with Avery’s Angels Gastroschisis Foundation.
