I’m 33 and I meet the criteria for hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which has led to a multitude of surgeries in the last 20 years.

I previously worked in health care but now due to my hypermobility choose to work as a Web Designer for other helping professionals.

I enjoy doing anything creative (drawing, photography, graphic design, candle making) and feel blessed to live on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.
