My name is Ana Maria Selvaggio, aka “Ria” or Renmeleon. I worked full-time from a home-based studio as a freelance illustrator, writer, and designer for over 30 years. I cleared my plate at the end of 2011 to focus on the projects that meant the most to me.
A 15-year veteran of systemic, primary Lymphedema, a lack of information in the medical community has urged me to become a Lymphedema Advocate in order to spread awareness.
In March of 2013, at the age of 43, I graduated from Full Sail University with my Creative Writing MFA (screenwriting), a graduate certificate in Instructional Design & Technology (curriculum development using current tech), and a Course Director’s Award under my belt. I currently reside with my husband Val, and my daughter, and more pandas than you can shake a stick at in Berea, Kentucky.
I am not a physician.
I am a patient and student of Lymphedema (LE). I post what I have learned over the years and make no claim that what works for me will work for anyone else.
This is my story unfolding…
