At age twelve, I was diagnosed with severe scoliosis. After taking a chance on an alternative treatment, I became the National Patient Advocate for ScoliosisSpecialists promoting the SpineCor Soft Brace. My doctor's and I's efforts helped influence the medical community & FDA towards accepting this particular alternative treatment for scoliosis. In one year of advocacy and volunteerism I received the Presidential Call to Service Award for completing four thousand hours of community service and raised over $40,000 towards treatment for low income patients.
For three years, I served as a Local Representative and Junior Ambassador Mentor for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, raising over $5,000 for my local CMN Hospital, Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), in partnership with the Miss America Organization. Today, I continue to serve CHLA as an active volunteer and Emerging Leader.
