ABOUT US

It's not just an app, it's a movement

We are a global community that empowers one another through personalized connections, paving the way to a more accessible and unstigmatized future. 

 

Within our mobile app we have created an environment of sharing experiences and hardships where we don’t let our disabilities and health conditions define us.

Beyond the Riley App, our movement is to promote a better life by connecting people with similar experiences

HOW IT STARTED

When all her friends were applying to college in their senior year, Elizabeth Tikoyan was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. As her friends were off starting their new journeys, she stayed back to get treatment. Fast forward 7 years and Elizabeth is a recent graduate of the University of Virginia and has founded the Riley App to help people meet others living with the same health condition. The name "Riley" is in honor of a close friend she made while volunteering in the hospital.  Riley passed away while waiting for a transplant, but her legacy lives on.
