Sharon brings such a wonder and delight to conversations. Her curiosity along with her communication skills lend themselves beautifully to guiding conversations to meaningful and relatable insights for her audience, those with autoimmune challenges, and even those who support an individual with an autoimmune disorder. But perhaps most importantly, she does so in a way that shares hope and inspiration for others to follow her journey.
