Board of Directors: 

Theresa Denham:  Founder/President of OLDN- Theresa Denham began the Oregon Lyme Disease Network, a 501c3 non profit  in 2001, thinking there were a very few people with this "rare" east coast illness in Oregon. She was diagnosed with MS at age 28, and at 41 was re-diagnosed with Lyme disease by a specialist on the east coast. Her MS neurological clinical and diagnostic symptoms have resolved since she did her 9 month treatment for Lyme Disease .   
Since then the Theresa has helped over 2500 patients navigate the tricky waters of diagnosis and treatment.  
When she is not busy with Lyme disease she is busy on her Central Oregon ranch .  She raises Tennessee Walking Horses and German Shepherd Dogs . Theresa  trains German Shepherd Dogs that are for HRD and Air Scent Search and Rescue and for service dogs.  She is also a PADI scuba diver and working on her Dive Master and Instructors Programs
Dr. Stephen Heppe- Vice President - Steve Heppe PhD   Joined the Oregon Lyme Disease Network in 2009 when his family was afflicted with Lyme Disease. He has been instrumental in guiding the group in review of statistics, papers and published documents regarding Lyme disease. Dr. Heppe scuba dives and spends time with his family when not working.
