Short Bio and connection to TSC: I come from a small town in Central Arkansas and have a passion for helping others. As a mother of six biological and two inherited children, I first became aware of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) when my daughter became ill in August 2013. Through my work with the TS Alliance, I helped raise greater awareness of TSC throughout the state of Arkansas and hope to continue these efforts in the state of Tennessee.
