My Story:
I'm a mother of two grown sons, have a great daughter-in-law, granddaughter and grandson.

I have fibromyalgia and by the early/mid 90's that impacted my ability to continue to work outside the home, voluntarily or otherwise. That's when I found the internet which opened up a whole new world to me, helped me deal with the pain and have fun, gave me options for work, and, most importantly, created long-lasting and valuable friendships.

I came to WebMD in May 2001. I've been moderating online message boards since November 1996 and I love being part of a community that helps people find the support and information they need regarding their health conditions. And moderating utilizes all the (previously unmarketable) skills and experience I had. It's a perfect fit for me.

Favorite Books: To Kill a Mockingbird, Shipping News, Lovely Bones, The Book Thief, Kite Runner, Les Miserable, Angela's Ashes

Movies/TV: Shawshank, Touching the Void, City of God, Princess Bride, Right Stuff, Finding Nemo, and more. Mad Men, Band of Brothers, Deadwood, Rome, Survivor, Buffy, Firefly, Amazing R, Lost, Big Bang, Modern Family.

Music: Peter Gabriel, Alanis, Melissa E, Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin, Mozart, opera, blues and the list goes on.

Hobbies: Reading, traveling, nature walks, music, computer gaming.

Favorite Places I've been: West coast of Vancouver Island, the area around Sydney Australia.

Dream Vacations: African Safari, Antarctic cruise, space flight.

What Inspires Me: Enduring friends, ones who overcome so much in their own lives, the members on WebMD are always inspiring and humbling to me with their strength and eloquence and ability to support each other.
