History with the condition
When Birgit was first diagnosed with MS, her whole life changed. She didn't know what was going on – only that a massive shift had happened in her life. But she has come a long way since.
She works with her business partner in her own company. She founded the Manufaktur für Antworten UG in 2005, shortly after her diagnosis.
Birgit works as Social Media and Communication Expert, Journalist, and Speaker. She has over 12 years of experience and specializes in health topics.
