She has become passionate about sharing this key knowledge and has worked with Philips Respironics as their Patient Advocate for several years, helping raise awareness and educating others about the importance of quality sleep. Philips partners with NBC's The Biggest Loser to address sleep disorders in the majority of the cast every season.
