Portland, OR

hi my names emma! i'm 24 years old with a passion for advocating and sharing my experiences as someone living with endometriosis, adenomyosis, PCOS, chronic pain, and more. It took 7 years of feeling like I was crazy & doctors telling me I was being overdramatic about my pain, to finally get an official endo diagnosis. I hope that by sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly, we can start much-needed conversations, spread awareness, change the narrative, & make care more accessible to all!
