After taking a break, Krista Assman of Greensville, MI, resumed her role as a UMDF Support Ambassador in 2020. Krista is mom to her son, Mito Warrior Skyler. When Krista rejoined the ambassador program, she hit the ground running. Krista, with her very good friend, fellow Mito Mom Jamison Keegstra, began monthly virtual support meetings for patient families in Michigan. Krista and Jamison are excited to connect Michigan residents to education, support and information about mitochondrial disease.
Krista is a tireless advocate for respite services for patient families.
Her efforts were recently featured in an article by Second Wave. You can read the article here.
Krista continues to educate others about mitochondrial disease and recently spoke to a group of medical students. She is proud of the fact that she has educated many, in and out of the special needs community, about mitochondrial disease.
Great work, Krista. We are happy to have you back!
