Why The Pickle Jar?

Individuals living with adrenal insufficiency tend to require HIGH SODIUM diets to maintain electrolyte levels. A LOVE for PICKLES is the norm in our world & the perfect name to represent our community. Every listener is represented in the jar by a pickle.



THE PICKLE JAR is inspired by my personal journey with a rare autoimmune disease, Addison’s Disease or Adrenal Insufficiency. I was diagnosed in 2011 & lacked the support that I needed to manage my illness & have the best quality of life.

Years of experience advocating for myself lead me to THE PICKLE JAR Podcast. It is my passion to connect people GLOBALLY living with Adrenal Insufficiency & all invisible illnesses.
