Katie Schwartz: Founder, Dear Thyroid.

Katie is a comedy writer and essayist. Her essays have been featured in Ostrich Ink, Monkeybicycle, Dirty Humor Issue #5, Farmhouse Magazine, Girlistic Magazine, Tastes like Chicken and 6S, among others. Her essays have also debuted at Comedy Central’s Sit-n-Spin. Katie’s first, essay collection titled Emotionally Pantsed is forthcoming (date TBA).You can read her daily rants about life, love, or lack thereof and social commentary at her website, KatieSchwartz.com and her archives at All the Way from Oy to Vey. Katie is also a freelance health writer for LA Thyroid Health Examiner and LIVESTRONG.com.

Ravaged, not in an, Oh, please don’t stop kind of way, by Graves’ disease and Graves’ Opthalmopathy, she is an inductee in the Jacked Thyroid Club. A practicing vegetarian, gluten free, feminist and vintage tchoch collector, Katie gave birth to Dear Thyroid after recalling the many hate letters she penned at the too-many-to-cite heights of her illness, hoping other members of the JTC  (jacked thyroid club) might find it as cathartic as she did and still does.

You can find out more about Katie by visiting her website.

PS: Katie would also like to extend special thanks and gratitude to Quin Browne and Freida Bee, two women she adores who, to this day will always be a part of Dear Thyroid in spirit.
