How Lupus Helped Define My Job, But Not Me

Adapting To Change

For Zapponian Mikel Goon, getting out of bed every morning is something to celebrate. Suffering from bouts of incredible joint pain, muscle aches, fever and overwhelming exhaustion, she was diagnosed with Lupus a few short years ago. Lupus, the invisible disease, often strikes without warning but Mikel wanted to help others, like herself, who have unique physical needs. Working with Social CLT, she teamed up with Zappos Adaptive to interact with customers online and help them find functional and fashionable products that make life easier.
