Hi! I'm Shawn!
Blogger | Health Advocate | Social Media Strategist
In addition to thriving through chronic illness, I’m a full-time creative!
I spend half my time comforting the afflicated, and the other half afflicting the comfortable. - Wess Stafford
My chronic illness lead me to my purpose. I hope to inspire people to find their own.
All of my work is centered around one thing: community. From building and engaging to advocating and comforting. I found my voice online. I raised it from there.
My passions are as simple as...
Social Media isn’t just my job, it’s my passion! – And was once a way of life as a bed-bound patient in my early 20’s. I know the importance of social media because I relied on it as my only source of connection to the outside world.
AMPLIFYING THE PATIENT VOICE
As a patient advocate, it is my mission to bridge the long divided gaps in healthcare and serve as a voice for my community. A community silenced for too long. There is no product or service for patients that doesn’t require insight from patients.
Blogging for Two Fourth, Writing Poetry for the Gram or my featured work for health and lifestyle websites, I love writing and find it almost therapeutical for me. The art of story telling and the power of that alone is not to be under-estimated.
