As of Monday, you will have a new moderator on this exchange. Andie_WebMD_Staff is a wonderful moderator and will be a great help to the Kidney community

I have loved helping out on the Kidney community, it is a favorite of mine. This is a great community filled with support. Please come visit me on the Rheumatoid Arthritis community anytime.

Welcome Andie!

Thanks Lainey for your support and input. And welcome Andie. Seems to be quite the moving around right now at WebMD. Hope you all enjoy your new communities.

Andie_WebMD_Staff replied to mrscora01's response:
Thanks so much for the introduction and warm welcome! I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you and supporting you in any way I can.

I've been working with WebMD since April 2010, but have been working with online communities for some time. As a matter of fact, I think Lainey & I were brought on at about the same time!

I'm very happy to be here with you and will love helping out in the Kidney Disorders community. I've had my challenges with kidney stones several times, so I am "fairly" familiar with the pain, at least.

Take care, and I will see you around the community soon!
