ATHENA Young Professionals Award Nomination

I am pleased to announce that I have been nominated for an ATHENA Young Professionals Award.

According to the website, “The ATHENA Award’s focus on mentorship distinguishes it from other awards recognizing women in business.

By honoring exceptional leaders, the ATHENA Award Program inspires others to achieve personal and professional excellence. Each Recipient receives a handcrafted ATHENA Award Sculpture, with a unique design inspired by the Greek Goddess Athena, who represents courage and wisdom guided by reason.”

The award goes to young professional women in Pittsburgh who serve as role models to others.


Glitzburgh, Arthritis Foundation, and More!

My work with the Arthritis Foundation & the American College of Rheumatology are still going strong. You can check out new AF Wellness with a Side of Life blog posts, here. (Also pretty cool? A number of my blog posts for the AF have been translated into Spanish for their sister site!) And, in addition to being named a Top 10 Online RA Expert by Dr. Oz's website, ShareCare Now over the summer, taking part in a virtual Congressional hearing on x-ray imaging with former Pittsburgh Steeler LC Greenwood, and being interviewed for an ABC News article on juvenile  arthritis, I've also been featured as a part of the American College of Rheumatology's Simple Tasks Campaign. You can view my "case study," here. 

I am also still building my blog & website, Glitzburgh. This Thursday, I will be meeting Joe Manganiello again, a Pittsburgh native of True Blood and Magic Mike fame. I am in talks to do some pretty awesome interviews and product reviews coming up soon, as well.
