My name is Lisa. I was born and raised, and currently reside in Denver, Colorado. I was born in 1979 so as of writing this, I’m in my early 30s (update – I’m 40).
I have always been an active and healthy person. I was raised in the mountains where I hiked and camped regularly. I even hiked the entire 500 mile Colorado Trail in 2010. (The photo above is from my finish line.) I grew up skiing but I stopped in my mid-20s. Post floxing, my physical activities have changed. Now I like swimming, pilates and walking. Both pre- and post-floxing, being physically active has always been important to me.
I have a Masters in Public Administration and I currently work at a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) providing financing to developers of affordable housing.
I have a wonderfully supportive family and great friends who believed in me and believed that I would get better even when I didn’t believe it myself. They have all been great through this ordeal.
My intention is to help anyone who is adversely affected by fluoroquinolones as much as I can. If you need anything at all from me, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you and I hope that you are feeling well!
