My name is Kathy and I am a long-time vaccine advocate. I am a mother, special education teacher, and scientist. You can read here about what started me on this vaccine advocacy journey. While I don’t like to use my children for attention, I do believe that story is important to share. I also believe it is valid for me to note that I have a child on the autism spectrum. My interest in vaccines and autism advocacy comes from the heart.
I will always read respectful comments and consider them thoughtfully. My goal is to educate people about the risks and benefits of vaccines, according to international scientific consensus. I have no ties to pharmaceutical companies whatsoever and never have. In fact, to qualify for a 2015 CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award, I had to prove I have no ties to industry whatsoever. I am just a volunteer vaccine advocate because it is the right thing to do and vaccines do work. I am currently working my way back into being a public school teacher, taking classes at the local university.
