The Beginner's Guide to Walking — Jennifer van Amerom

Based in Toronto, Canada, Jennifer has had NMOSD for over 12 years. She’s an entrepreneur, HR consultant, part-time professor, mother, and wife. She’s also the executive director for The Sumaira Foundation, Canada. It’s her belief that staying busy is what keeps her distracted from her disability, which is usually invisible. You can try to keep up with Jennifer on her column, “The Beginner’s Guide to Walking.” When Jennifer struggles to sleep, she is easily distracted by pug photos and videos.
