Sara Ringer

Hi there, I'm Sara! Living sassily without my entire large intestine since 2008. I am the proud writer/founder of the blog Inflamed & Untamed, and a IBD YouTuber. I am also a regular on the IBD Round Table and part of the Janssen IBD Social Circle. My mission is to educate and inspire other patients living with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, while giving a positive yet realistic account of life with IBD on my blog, YouTube channel, and all the other places you can find me on the intergoogle machine. When I am not sick or hospitalized I work as a nail technician and make-up artist in a high end, fast paced, upbeat salon. Click the icons and links below to find out what i'm doing to make a difference!
