PKD Connect Ambassador

I’m the PKD Connect Ambassador for Oklahoma because I am the third generation of my family to have PKD and I want to make a difference for my future generations. By volunteering, I am able to build valuable connections with other families that have PKD as well as learn about important research. This is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had and I encourage you to join me as we unite to fight PKD!

PKD Connect Ambassador

I am excited to join the PKD foundation as a PKD Connect Ambassador in Oklahoma to help educate about the disease.  My husband’s family has been affected by PKD for generations and it was really surprising how little information there is about the disease.  I hope to be an advocate for those that are affected by helping to provide resources and education.  I am hopeful for the future with new research and advances for PKD.
