Grieves hosting an information table.

Location: Cumberland, MD
Pain warrior role: Ambassador since 2014
Pain conditions: Psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, pustular psoriasis disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and migraines
Fun fact: She is an avid music lover and loves statistical analysis; put the two together, and she is in her element.
Favorite tip: “Pink Floyd sang ‘Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day.’ This reminds me to sit for a few moments each day for myself, because time is all we have and yet never enough.”
