Kristy Dickinson, founder and chief executive officer, Chronically Simple
Kristy Dickinson is a mom to three kids, a wife to a first responder and an entrepreneur. She’s also a rare disease patient. Prior to her diagnosis, Dickinson ran a successful staff recruitment firm. Her life was kept busy meeting with clients, traveling for work and running a busy household. When she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome at 37, her life changed in an instant. Following her diagnosis, she closed her firm so that she could manage her health full-time. When she went looking for a solution to manage all of the administrative tasks that accompany life with a chronic illness, nothing existed. Dickinson created Chronically Simple to manage her healthcare and with the intention of empowering others to do the same.
