Angie is Senior Editor at Migraine Again and founder of the blog Chronic Migraine Life. Her experience navigating work, the medical system, and the Social Security Administration while struggling with chronic daily migraine trained and inspired her to advocate for herself and others like her.
On behalf of this underserved, often invisible population, she works in media to provide information and support to patients and their caregivers while advocating for greater attention to migraine for research and development - all while continuing to battle her own chronic migraine. As a patient advocate, she has spoken at industry and non-profit events, has served on patient advisory panels, and has been interviewed online, in podcasts, and on TV.
