Tick Boot Camp’s guests today is Maribeth Lacy. Maribeth Lacy grew up in the Mennonite community of Guys Mills, Pennsylvania where she estimates that 1 of every 3 people are suffering from a tick disease. After making the decision to leave her Mennonite community and culture to attend college in California, her tick disease related illnesses caused her health to decline and forced her to leave college before graduation.
