Rheumatoid Arthritis Community Advocate Kelly Mack

Kelly Mack was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age two in 1979. Since then, she’s been pretty busy.

She grew up in upstate New York and now lives with her husband in Washington, DC. Kelly earned a BA in Psychology from Bryn Mawr College and an MA in Communications from Johns Hopkins University. She works full-time for a marketing communications firm.

Kelly’s RA affects all her joints and she uses a wheelchair to help with mobility. She’s had both her hips and knees replaced at age 15, with a knee revision in January 2013.
Besides enjoying time with her husband and reading, Kelly likes to travel and visit her family.
