My name is Charlie Justice Barron. I am a native of Atlanta, Georgia. I am a
United States Army veteran, a culinary chef, entrepreneur and MS advocate. I was diagnosed with MS in 2011, an absolutely life changing year for me. Before MS, I had the distinct opportunity to work as a chef in some of Atlanta’s most premier restaurants. I also traveled the country as a corporate chef, opening new restaurants and building company brands. One of the highlights of my culinary career was an appearance on Good Morning America’s Southeastern Food Tour.
My passion for entrepreneurship led me to embark on several business ventures, including a catering company whereby I had the honor of serving as the official caterer for the GA State Bar Association. I also worked as personal fitness trainer and chef to several Atlanta dignitaries and professional athletes.
MS came along led me down a path of self-reinvention. It has become my personal mission to motivate, uplift and inspire individuals living with MS to keep moving and to keep fighting no matter what obstacles they may be facing. To that end, I have created a podcast called MS Will Lose to provide a platform for the entire MS community to share ideas. I am an active member of iConquerMS and I serve on its Engagement Committee. I am a husband and a father and, as such, I understand that I must continue to fight everyday against MS. I have already defied my doctors and what they believed I would be capable of doing since my diagnosis. I have no doubt that I will beat MS and, indeed, MS Will Lose!
