Founder, writer, speaker & autoimmune wellness advocate
Palmer worked in the corporate world for 25 years and held a variety of sales and marketing leadership roles in the high tech and telecommunications industries. She also founded a literacy program that serves children in local, underserved communities called Reading is Freedom, and she has served on several boards of organizations focused on women’s empowerment, education and world peace. Palmer is deeply grateful to have found her calling in helping people learn how to find new levels of healing from autoimmune conditions. She wishes she had had a resource like Beat Autoimmune as she faced a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis 30 years ago. It all started one summer day after her freshman year in college when she experienced tingling sensations that crept up her legs and stayed. That afternoon her parents took her to see a neurologist who pronounced with certainty that she had Multiple Sclerosis (MS). By evening her whole body was enshrouded in numbness that wouldn’t retreat for two months. Then began the long, slow path to healing.
