My name is Charlie Justice Barron. I am a natve 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 moment for me. Before MS I had the distinct opportunity to work in some of Atlanta's most premier restaurants. I traveled the country as a coroporate chef, opening new restuarants and implementing company policies and proceudres. My passion for entrepreneurialship 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 for several Atlanta dignitaries and professinal athletes.
MS led me down a path of reinvention. It has become a 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 for the entire MS community to gather with likeminded individuals. I am an active member of iConquerMS and I serve on the iConquerMS 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, yes, MS WILL LOSE.
