Pelvic Mesh Owner’s Guide is written by a health activist who is currently working with women who were injured by transvaginal mesh. She was implanted with pelvic mesh 12 years ago and underwent two revisions for severe complications. She leads several support groups for the mesh-injured offering tips, support, and translating complicated medical language into ordinary English.
The author discovered her love for medical research in the dusty bowels of the Yale University Medical Library, digging out obscure data from the annals of medicine. Her experience as a Statistical Assistant gave her the skills to evaluate peer-reviewed medical studies.
As a registered nurse, she worked for twenty years in busy emergency rooms where she focused on women’s health and conducted gentle and compassionate rape crisis interviews and examinations. She learned normal and abnormal pelvic physiology as a natural childbirth educator and lay-midwife. She was a member of the California Sexual Assault Investigators Association a coordinator of the California Attorney General’s Northern California Consortium of Multidisciplinary Interview Centers.
She spent recent years volunteering as a television scriptwriter and executive producer, with two award-winning television shows, and appearing on local radio and television programs. She writes for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Point Reyes Light. Currently, she provides up-to-date information and individual help to surgical mesh victims in this blog, Pelvic Mesh Owner’s Guide, and several online support groups. Her background, abilities, and determination to help mesh injured women make her ideally suited to write Pelvis In Flames, a work in progress.
