Migraine Advocacy

My mission is to relate, educate, empower, and support individuals with migraine, as well as their families and caregivers. I seek to break down stigmas associated with migraine and headache disorders to promote an understanding of the impact that chronic illness can have on a person and family's daily lives.

I share personal stories, resources, coping strategies, and information about fundraising and events in the migraine and pain communities. I work towards advocating for more funding, awareness, and healthcare policies related to migraine management. I have an interest in how migraine and headache disorders are talked about and seen in the media.

Overall, I aim to create a supportive and informative space for those affected by migraine, while also striving to improve the broader understanding of this debilitating condition.

I engage with a wide range of stakeholders. I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing organizations to help improve funding, awareness, research, and community in the migraine world and beyond.  

For further inquiries on how we can work together, please email mymigrainelife@gmail.com.

Remember that advocacy is a long-term effort, often taking time to see significant changes. However, by building a strong and informed advocacy network and consistently pushing for increased resources and awareness, we can make a difference in the lives of people affected by migraine and headache disorders.
