After being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2014, she received her ostomy in 2016 due to a bout of toxic megacolon and is currently in the process of constructing a J-pouch.

She always says that finding Girls with Guts was like coming home, ever since attending her first retreat in 2016. She fell in love with the idea of using art as a means of coping with IBD and hopes to help other women find the same reprieve that she did by helping them to access their creativity.
