JENNI GROVER PROKOPY

Jenni Grover Prokopy is founder of ChronicBabe.com, where she draws on her experience with fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions to teach women to live well despite illness. Her book on crafting an incredible life beyond illness—ChronicBabe 101—will be published in 2017. For 25 years, Jenni has enjoyed success as a writer, speaker, activist, and consultant to hundreds of organizations worldwide. She focuses on health care, helping others craft and share stories of strength, wellness, and inspiration in the face of adversity. Many women with chronic pain or illness feel they don’t have a voice in the healthcare conversation. In fact, women are far under-represented in conversations about law, finance, and social issues related to health care. Jenni’s work is meant to strengthen women’s voices and help them be heard about the reality of life with chronic illness.
