headshot of emily wahlEmily Wahl is a New Orleans native, currently residing in Laurel, MS with her husband, Chance and beloved miniature dachshund, Margot. Diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at 4 years old, Emily has navigated chronic illness her whole life.

Most recently, Emily is delving into the lifestyle changes and challenges brought about by pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). After years of misdiagnosis, she aspires to shed light on the complexities of PAH, symptom awareness, and early diagnosis.

When she isn’t advocating, Emily is helping others highlight their abilities and full potential as a physical therapist. She can usually be found in the kitchen creating new recipes, is always listening to music, and has a candle lit in every room.

You learn more about her path to resilience through her personal blog and Instagram @HealMeWholeHeartedly where she shares personal stories of the challenges living with Sjögren’s Syndrome, PAH, Lupus, and FSGS.
