About the Author
Meredith Park is a Lyme Warrior and mom who loves nature, photography, traveling, and spending time at the horse stable with her daughter. Outside of her professional work at an elementary school, family is very important to her, and she is passionate about creating lasting memories together. In Moon Child Rising, Meredith combined her love of storytelling with her passion for Lyme disease awareness and education. Meredith is also a part of the Global Lyme Alliance Peer Mentor Program, a free resource for people who are affected by Lyme disease and/or other tick-borne illness that connects Lyme patients, caregivers, and family members with someone who has already “been there” to provide support and hope. “The scariest part of all is that there STILL isn’t enough research, funding, or resources to help those of us who so desperately need it, Meredith explains. "That’s why she decided to be a Peer-to-Peer mentor with the Global Lyme Alliance. “I want to help others who need extra support, whether they are new to the diagnosis, navigating lonely waters, or just need someone who has really been there, too.“ Get in touch with Meredith at meredithapark.com, or on instagram @meredithpark21.
