Peer Support Partner – Heather


Age at diagnosis?

I was diagnosed when I was eleven and I am now 26 years old – 15 years ago

Why I chose to be a Peer Support Partner?

I had such a positive experience having a Peer Support Partner that I wanted to become one myself.  I found the experience of speaking with someone who also has rheumatoid arthritis to be invaluable.

A little about me

I am a third year law student with three part-time jobs and have a busy life style.   In my spare time, I love spending time with friends, family, reading, and enjoying life.
