About Me


I was born and raised in Minden, NV and am proud of my small town roots. I married my high school sweetheart and am still madly in love with him – we’ve been together over half of our lives! In March 2014 I completed 3.5 years of active treatment for Lyme disease, then in July I suffered a relapse. By Spring of 2015 I finished the traditional treatment course and started with a Functional Medicine doctor in Reno, NV. After my program with them, my body is now solid and I am finally in control of my body instead of my body being in control of me.

This blog was used to journal the fight for my life against Lyme disease, Babesia, Bartonella and a handful of parasites. I was determined to beat Lyme disease and be an advocate for other Lymies and here I am! Please use this site as a resource for things to help you or a loved one along your journey.

Now that I am healthy, I’m using my blog as a platform to share what I’ve learned from my program with a functional medicine doctor and further education I received from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.

  1. HI,
    I am a late stage chronic LYME sufferer. I enjoy your blog!
    I have developed a childrens cartoon video and placed it on Youtube. It teaches kids to be “tick aware”.
    Please hit on it…as our goal is to make it go viral, so media will come knocking, thus opening the door to teach Lyme awareness.
    Please add this link to your blog, requesting your readers to hit on it, as well as your social media connections. Thank you for your tremendous work. Perhaps a cure will be found for us one day.
