I'm a mother, wife, and researcher. I have always been interested in research and even at a young age, I knew I wanted to be involved in DMD research. I have ran the WDW marathon through Run for Our Sons and I am in a perfect point in my career where I can make a difference. My motivation is my family and all the families who have been affected.
About my family:
My mother had 4 brothers, 2 of whom had DMD. Prior to trying to have children, I chose to do genetic testing to find out if I am a carrier. My odds were so low that we decided to proceed and a year ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I want to make sure that she knows the family history and to appreciate all the research efforts for end Duchenne.
