I was diagnosed with Wilson’s disease in my junior year in high school. It was an early diagnosis, and my disease was caught and treated before severe symptoms started occurring.

This experience of getting diagnosed led to my career interest of biomedical engineering, which I just graduated with my masters degree in at Johns Hopkins. In my time at Hopkins, I worked for a season in Dr. Lutsenko’s (Scientific Advisor to the Wilson’s Disease Association) lab, and am very excited for the potential of their groundbreaking research in copper metabolism.

I know that the reason my disease was caught and treated early was because of the crucial network of doctors and researchers spanning Texas, Michigan, and Baltimore that I came into contact with, and I am Walking on Wilson’s with the WDA to support and share this life-saving network for the benefit of many other future patients
