Name: Mary Nadon Scott
Where do you call home? Northfield, Vermont (Central Vermont)
Education: I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing (Registered Nurse) from the University of Vermont in 2004. However, I am currently a stay at home Mom.
What is your relationship status? Do you have children? I am happily married to my wonderful husband Kevin, and I have 4 children; 2 step-children (Isaac 10 and Bella 8) and 2 born to me (Elijah 4 and Gabriel 2).
What's a typical day for you? I am a stay at home Mom, and stay busy with my 4 year old in pre-school and my 2 year old toddler. I also try to keep a regular work out routine with riding my recumbent bike, wheelchair aerobics, and alternating seasonally between aquatic therapy and wheeling laps on the track at a local university.
How long have you known you are living with FA? Growing up I was always the clumsy girl; tripping a lot, very poor balance, ran awkwardly, etc. So looking back now, I can see signs of FA, however at the time, I always attributed most symptoms to having scoliosis (I was diagnosed with that in 8th grade, by a school nurse). My FA diagnosis came later, when I was in college in 2002. I have been living with FA for 13 years.
Are there any others with FA in your family? I am the only one in my family with FA.
