Mrs. Colorado photo shoot

clipped from mrscolorado.blogspot.com

On Monday, June 1st I had my first official photo shoot as “Mrs. Colorado 2009.” It was so much fun getting to wear my crown and banner in the pics, they’re probably my favorite accessories I’ve ever had!
The mastermind behind all of my awesome pictures was Megan Anderson of Graphique Fine Art Photography, who is absolutley AMAZING! She makes taking pictures so much fun and effortless. My incredible make artist, Kari Kisch of “Make-up by Kari” made my look complete for the photo shoot.
I was fortunate enough to have the Pageant Director, Emily Stark, and good friend and Mrs. Colorado 2008, Christinal Sacha, there to provide thier ideas and expertise. Both have so much experience and knowledge about pageantry, so it was great having them there. And my sweet mom was at the shoot too, she’s such a trooper. She makes the long drive to Denver with me nearly every time I have an appearance or event.

Featured Panelist for UCB Conference

clipped from meredithboyd.blogspot.com

This morning at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta, UCB, a biopharmaceutical research company for immunology disorders had its annual sales conference. A panel of RA patients was invited to speak and inspire, motivate and connect UCB’s international sales team with real people who have unique experiences to share. Each RA patient is different, yet listening to each was very moving…there wasn’t a dry eye in the ballroom! I am so grateful to have met such strong and courageous friends during my advocacy journey, together we make a difference!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Cimzia, for the treatment of adult patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA)! This is a major milestone in technology to help cure rheumatoid arthritis. Congrats to everyone at UCB, you are all making a difference in the lives of others!
