That defiance and determination inform Knapp’s outlook. She adapts to ET, plans accordingly, and still accomplishes tasks. Knapp says, “We joke about the tremors and choose not to be a slave to them; rather we own them.”

“No one is exempt from challenges in life. I cannot deny tremors and banish them. They are ever present. I just try to minimize their control daily and am proactive in my endeavors,” she says.

While not a good candidate to become a surgeon, Knapp intends to study nursing and work as a nurse practitioner. She says, “To care for people’s physical needs would be a great choice for me in medicine.”
