Ambassador | United States

This is me- I am a sister to three amazing girls and two great men. I am a banker by trade, which is slightly ironic because math was always my worst subject in school. I love to bake, and decorate cakes in fun ways, and I especially enjoy going on spontaneous adventures!

I was diagnosed with MRKH in 2003, when I was 16 years old. Unfortunately, in my case my doctors had no knowledge or experience in dealing with MRKH and did not provide me with any information or tools on what it was or what todo about it.

I lived with my MRKH and the feelings of inadequacy it caused me to feel in near silence for ten years, before I finally broke free. At age 25 I finally realized that I am beautiful just as I am, and that not having most of my reproductive organs does not make me any less of a person. And I discovered that I am not alone.

With this new outlook on MRKH and life, I ventured on an adventure of self-discovery while doing my best to raise awareness for the condition and reach out to women like me. I was featured on two separate episodes of the daytime television show "The Doctors" in 2014, and write a weekly blog where I share the
most intimate feelings and experiences that life with MRKH has provided me.

Through social media, I have been able to connect with MRKH women all over the world. I have a passion to reach out to other women with MRKH with the hope that no woman will have to go through the MRKH journey alone, as I did.

I am super happy to be a part of the Australian Sisters for Love Ambassador Program – to connect our countries and bridge the gap between this unique sisterhood of women is truly changing lives, including my own.
