Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Julia Feygelman. Ms. Feygelman is a 25-year-old community health scientist from Corte Madera, California. She first started to experience the symptoms of a tick disease at just 15-years-old. She went on a volunteer trip to remove weeds, and a week later, she was hospitalized with a persistent high fever, rash, and swollen lymph nodes. She googled her own symptoms and knew she had Lyme disease, but since her test came back negative, it was never revisited. Ms. Feygelman fought through her symptoms to earn a B.S. and Master’s Degree from UCLA. It would take almost 10 years for her to be properly diagnosed with Lyme. If you would like to learn more about this brilliant Lymie who is in the midst of her healing journey, then tune in now!

Tick Boot Camp is designed to further the conversation about ticks, Lyme Disease and other tick diseases. Check out our podcast to hear first hand experiences.
