Cover Story

It was fun being a part of Health Monitor‘s article on Asthma. They featured me on the front cover and wrote a piece about exercise-induced asthma for a special edition.

It all started when Joana Mangune read my post “A conscious thing“, and contacted me to ask if they could interview me for an article in their magazine. I’d never heard of the magazine, and you probably haven’t either.

But if you’ve ever been stuck in a waiting room patiently waiting for your doctor to finally show up, that magazine could have been sitting right next to you. 

After answering a few questions, Joana then said they would like to feature me on the cover. This all happened during the Thomas Fire, and my trip to Maryland to help the kids move. Since I was escaping a fire, Joana decided to set up the photo shoot in Maryland instead.

I shared a post about getting professional hair and make-up, which was a lot of fun. You can check out the before and after photos by clicking on that link. It’s pretty amazing what a professional can do!

So here it is, my moment of fame.

Next time you’re at the doctor’s office, look around; you might see the magazine. You can pick it up and say, “Yeah, I know her”, and we can both be ‘somebody’ for a minute.

Oh, and no need to hide it under your coat when you leave…it’s free to take home. 😉

Special thanks to Jennifer Le for making me look so good! And to Lauren D. Rogers for taking these beautiful photos!
