My husband Lucas and I are the proud parents of three boys. Two on earth and one in heaven. We have our oldest son Baylis, angel John Ellis, and our rainbow baby Stanton.
I am proud to partner with ICP Care and am passionate about spreading awareness of Cholestasis of Pregnancy after losing our child John Ellis on January 6, 2017 at 35 weeks gestation due to an undiagnosed case of Cholestasis of pregnancy. Taking the antibiotic, amoxicillin triggered my Cholestasis of Pregnancy and my severe itching was mistreated as an allergic reaction. Since then, it has been my life’s passion to spread awareness and stop the unnecessary stillbirths or complications from ICP. Joining ICP Care is a true honor as I have utilized their resources and support many times.
I am a graduate of The University of Southern Mississippi, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Merchandise/Interior Design & Marketing Minor in 2008. I have a strong background in event planning and also created the Hope from John Ellis Benefit in partnership with One Wing Foundation. Hope from John Ellis brings awareness to Cholestasis of Pregnancy, as well as pregnancy and infant loss while raising funds to donate Cuddle Cot’s to local hospitals and issue grants to local charitable organizations within the community. I am truly blessed to bring these experiences to ICP Care.
I believe in this foundation and love the support I have received from Donna and her team since the loss of John Ellis. I know this organization has and will continue to be a vital part of helping women have successful pregnancies by fighting the itch of ICP together! God bless to all of you Mama’s in your pregnancy journey.
