Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Abby Lottridge. Ms. Lottridge is a 19-year-old college student from East Lyme, Connecticut. She was only in elementary school when she first started to experience the symptoms of a tick disease. She was tired all the time, and had flu-like symptoms. Ms. Lottridge was diagnosed with Lyme four separate times. She had to quit sports and couldn’t socialize with friends. Thanks to an amazing guidance counselor and high school teachers, Ms. Lottridge was able to graduate from high school on time. She was set to attend UConn on a rowing scholarship, but had to withdraw because the physical demands were too much on her body. If you would like to learn more about how Ms. Lottridge plans to help others throughout the course of her career, and how she is already making an impact in the Lyme community, then tune in now!
