Allison Starnes-Anglea was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis her sophomore year of high school. She experienced widespread joint swelling, continuous pain, and fatigue. With medication and a new knee joint, Allison makes the best of an uncomfortable daily life. “Just keep moving” is Allison’s motto for pain management. She enjoys paddle-boarding, barre classes, and low impact yoga. “Though I modify most exercises, I know consistent movement is the best thing for my joints. Without regular movement, I turn into the Tin Man without his oil can!”
Allison and her husband, Cody, have an adorable 3-year-old. Allison is the Director of Career Services at a local law school.
