What do you get when you cross an academic with Chief Executive Adventurer? You get Dr Erika Jacobson from Edgewalkers. Erika walks miles and miles with fellow hiking and walking enthusiasts across beautiful landscapes within Western Australia and beyond. But we don’t just traverse landscapes in this interview. We cover the terrain of autoimmune conditions and specifically Orofacial Granulomatosis.  Discover how Erika had to navigate teaching and presenting with this lip disfigurement for many years until it miraculously disappeared.
