I am a 37 year old marketing specialist turned Long COVID Advocate & Co-Founder of BIPOC Equity Agency, from Northern Virginia. Recovering from a March 2020 mild COVID-19 infection that lead to disability. Due to my severe Long COVID symptoms, I have had to seek care at local emergency rooms dozens of times and have been admitted for care for a total of over 30 days.
I am currently working on a number of Long COVID and ME/CFS projects including diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives in research and healthcare through BIPOC Equity Agency. to curate more diverse patient populations in Long COVID studies. I am also working with Long COVID researchers to help generate insights into therapies for Long COVID and creating informational content for longhaulers on Hugo Health Kindred - a Long COVID community.
