Sparking real conversations for real change
Hello!!! My love for connecting with people brought me to public speaking again and again,
but my passion is speaking about mental health.
I'm a native of Washington, DC and currently reside in Durham, NC. I'm a mother, wife, sister and friend. I have worked in the behavioral healthcare field for 19 years and currently serve as the Director of Corporate Compliance for a managed care organization for publicly funded behavioral health care services. My current role has allowed me to lecture on a variety of topics from organizational culture to owning your personal style.
I share my personal experiences (including struggles) with my mental health and healing in an effort to create change in the lives of others; with the hopes that having honest conversations about mental health and the stigmas that have formed around it - will be reduced, and silent sufferers will seek help and no longer feel alone.
