Hi, my name is Bernadette Scarduzio. I have been a fierce advocate and spokesperson for the CMT community since 2006. In 2013, I was the subject of a documentary called “BERNADETTE”, which chronicled my life with CMT.  It has become my life’s mission to help others and their families come forth and talk about CMT to support one another and let the world know of its existence.

In 2003, I received a Certification in Personal Training and Nutrition at the National Personal Training Institute. I was a Certified Personal Trainer for Zone Fitness and 2nd Wind gym in the early 2000s until I went into a chair in 2009. I currently work for the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation and continue to do personal training in my indoor Thermapool!

I credit much of my strength and wellness to my continuous aquatic therapy and have developed a wide variety of CMT-friendly pool exercises for myself, my clients, and the CMT community.

I am also a dedicated advocate for beach accessibility and an active endorser for Mobi Mat and Thermapools.
