One of our co-founders Sarah had the opportunity to be a guest on the weekly podcast That’s So Chronic, with host Jess Brien.
Sarah shared about her life living with migraine, and how starting a migraine blog in 2020 led her to co-found Migraine Foundation Aotearoa New Zealand with Fiona and Suzanne.
Sarah’s episode was released this week and you can listen to her episode on Apple podcasts, Spotify, iHeartRadio, stitcher, Google podcasts and online. Visit the That’s So Chronic podcast page for all the links and further information.
Thank you Jess for the opportunity to talk with you about migraine.
About That’s So Chronic
Jess is the host of the weekly podcast That’s So Chronic, where she interviews people from all around the world that are living with chronic illnesses, life changing injuries and potentially disastrous diagnoses. After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in her final year of drama school and being diagnosed a “medical mystery” at the end of 2019, Jess was inspired to connect and share stories to spread awareness and hope.
Jess is really passionate about removing the stigma around chronic illnesses and disabilities, so others can live their best lives. She also loves to make people laugh and since graduating drama school/being diagnosed with MS in 2014, she’s been performing across New Zealand and internationally in a variety of festivals, circus tents, streets and theatres. Highlights include performing her comedy juggling show Jess The Mess at Wembley Stadium for London’s World Busking Day, and hosting Blackboard Theatre Collective’s Isolation Mix Tape concert with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.
When Jess isn’t performing or working on That’s So Chronic, she can usually be found watching documentaries, dreaming of travel plans, eating gluten free pizza and laughing at her own jokes.
