CF Podcast 151: Jessie Ennis Interview - Self Management and Pursuing Goals with Cystic Fibrosis

CF Podcast 151: Self Management and Pursuing Goals with Cystic Fibrosis

 

Today we meet Jessie Ennis, a 22 year old with CF who was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Because of a family history of the disease, Jessie's parents had her tested for CF before she was six weeks of age. In spite of CF, she had a relatively normal childhood - growing up with her brother and a series of foster kids - and remained healthy through high school. 

 

Now Jessie: 

 

  • studies health and society in college,
  • is currently visiting and working a summer job in San Diego,
  • and has taken up surfing and skiing. 

To learn more about Jessie and the ways she manages her disease while pursuing her goals, please listen to her podcast here [insert link].
