Meet Me

Hi, my name is Natalie! I created Thrown for a Lupe to share my story of how life has changed since I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) in January 2013, and recently with Chronic Lyme Disease in April 2017. 

I am a child of God, wife to my super understanding husband Zach, mama to Brooklyn (born 2015) and Caleb (born 2016), and senior biology and health sciences teacher (that's the nerdy researcher side). 

You can click here or use the button below to read a summary of my personal health story. 

It takes a lot of grit to live life with joy in the face of chronic illness.  
Let's do life together!
