Founder of myheartsisters.com. "I have University majors in Statistics and English Literature and am a writer, website consultant and director of a website development company. I was diagnosed with PPCM in July 2011, and made a full recovery and went on to have a healthy pregnancy and baby in 2014. On my road to recovery I explored and used many natural alternative therapies, diet and nutrition and have read extensively about PPCM, heart disease from both a statistical, research based modality as well as a natural health perspective but I believe the most important aspect of recovery is faith and hope."

"I became a first time mother to healthy, beautiful, happy daughter on July 29th 2010. When my daughter was only 8 days old I was diagnosed with PPCM finding myself in the Cardiac Unit, tearfully away from my newborn for a week. I was determined to become a recovered survivor. I spent that winter caring for my body via nutrition and sleep, also soaking in every glorious moment of motherhood. By Spring 2011 I started walking while pushing my daughter in a stroller- she always gave me a grin of confidence. My walks started by measuring blocks I could accomplish and by early Summer I was speed walking 2 miles. I decided the best way to celebrate life was by forming a team for the Fall 2011 American Heart Association Heart Walk. Around the time of the Heart Walk I found out I was completely recovered, medication free, with an EF of 60!!! The walk was a beautiful celebration while being surrounded by my closest family and friends. That's when I got the courage to keep doing more to allow PPCM the awareness it deserves. We have joyously done the AHA Chicago Heart Walk every year since. I was able to connect with amazing women from all over the world through Facebook support groups which has allowed me the opportunity to be a knowledgeable contact for myheartsisters.com. I proudly accepted 2 "Top Walker" plaques for funds raised by walking. Winter of 2011 my personal story was published by the AHA in "Notes From the Heart". Over the past 2 years I have also been involved in the Go Red For Women act. I have fundraised, attended numerous events, took part in National Go Red day with fundraising, gathered items for the silent auction at the annual Go Red Luncheon, and was even a survivor model in a small fashion show. I was afforded the opportunity to share my story with many clinicians at the fashion show February 2014. This Fall I humbly excepted the role as "Chicago's 2015 Mrs. Go Red". The AHA/Go Red will be using my story, pictures of my family and even a short film presented at the Go Red Luncheon February 2015 to help personalize the campaign against women's Heart Disease.

"I am a licensed practical nurse and am currently working on my BSN-RN. I have been a nurse for seven years, and after finishing my BSN I plan on specializing in a more holistic approach to recovery. In November 2012 I became a PPCM survivor. This has been a journey of healing and self discovery. I would be more than happy to share my experience with you."
