Stephanie Cenedella, Founder and CEO of SK Personal(ity), recently returned to the U.S. from a trip to Amsterdam and Copenhagen. On a family vacation, she watched from overseas as COVID-19 pandemic rapidly unfolded. Upon returning, she has determined that she has COVID-19. She can’t be tested because we don’t have enough tests in Boulder. Stephanie shares her experience, her symptoms, and what her doctor advises her about using gloves.
Stephanie also talks about:
- her COVID-19 symptoms and experience
- her anxiety about getting her 19 year old daughter home
- how her over-prepared husband was ready with all the right medicines and aids
- what her family is doing to make the best of being self-quarantined
