Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Victoria Kotowski. Ms. Kotowski is a 26-year-old lacrosse club director and coach from Long Island, New York. She was an extremely successful athlete and student in high school, with an active social life. That changed when she was 18 years old. Suddenly, Ms. Kotowski had pain in her joints, anxiety, migraines, and developed an eating disorder. She had a very isolating Lyme journey, and doctors misdiagnosed her symptoms as being related to various mental health issues. It took 14 years for her to get a Lyme diagnosis. If you would like to learn more about how Ms. Kotowski is using her experience to help and inspire others, then tune in now!
