Peer Support Partner – Mary Ellen


Age at diagnosis?

I have had RA for 12 years and am 44 years old now so i was diagnosed at age 32.

Why I chose to be a Peer Support Partner

 It took a while for me to get diagnosed and I would like to be able to provide support and be a sounding board for someone.

A little about me

 I work in retail, am in the process of remodeling some of my home, and enjoy outdoor activities. I am active in sports such as softball and skiing.
