My Story

Dealing with Lupus for 13 years has taught me many things about the importance of diet, nutrition and exercise. During one of my worst lupus flares, I was wheelchair bound and unable to even feed myself–at this point I knew I needed a drastic lifestyle change and that I could not go on living this way. Through intense juicing, diet changes, and supplementation, I was able to get myself out of the wheelchair. It was a slow process but I went from being fully reliant on others to 100% independent. Today, because of these improvements, I am the reigning Mrs. New York USA Universal, and will compete in Reno this summer at Mrs. USA Universal – something I would not have been able to physically do years ago. I love to share information about nutrition and diet (and how it can help those with autoimmune issues) through my platform and website, LupusChick.com
