Meet the Branch Leaders


Peter Morris

Peter first became involved with the CMTA in 2011 when one of his daughters was diagnosed with CMT at the age of 41. His daughter, who is unwilling to give up or give in, continues to work in the food service industry. She inspired Peter and his wife Jeanne to learn as much as they can about CMT and to share that knowledge with others. To date, neither of their other two grown children has been diagnosed with CMT, nor has anyone else in their family.

Maryann Ciskal

Maryann has a graduate certificate in adult learning and a BS in early childhood/early childhood special education. She currently works with childcare providers in Erie County, New York. She has CMT1, as do her brother and father. She is very excited to help others cope with this condition, spread the word on what it is and show others that one can lead a very active life even with CMT .

Kristen Braun

Kristen was diagnosed with CMT1A in 2005. She has participated in research studies and clinical trials conducted by Dr. David Herrmann at the Neuromuscular Disease Center at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York. Kristen has been a part of the Buffalo Branch since it started in May 2015. She looks forward to taking on a leadership role and to bringing the group together to support each other and raise awareness of CMT in the community.
