Sharon Fiedler-Shimanovsky held her first fundraiser for AFBS in 2013, a few months after her 7 month old daughter, Liv, was diagnosed with Nemaline Myopathy.  She has raised over $300,000 for NM research and is determined to raise more until there is treatment that truly betters the lives of those living with the disease.    When Sharon was pregnant with her second son, she was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer, which she beat.  Nemaline Myopathy is next.

Prior to becoming a mother, Sharon practiced law at Greenberg Glusker, LLP and subsequently joined her family’s real estate business.  She was named one of Los Angeles Magazine’s “super agents”  her first year.  She earned a B.A. from U.C.L.A. with departmental highest honors and a J.D. from U.C. Davis where she was a law review editor.  Her law review article was selected for publication in 1999.  She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children.
