With a passion for youth, education, and advocacy, I know we must center mental health within our communities and culture. I strongly desire to help transform people’s lives from “struggling” to “living.” Every child and adult deserves to live with dignity, and providing mental health access, education, and awareness are crucial catalysts to that coming to fruition. Living with bipolar 2, anxiety, and PTSD, I strive to help DBSA conduct its necessary work, as DBSA has helped me. I have received essential resources we all deserve by increasing my awareness, offering diverse journaling activities, and attending weekly support groups. Searching and obtaining support should not and must not be difficult.

Please join me in supporting others so that together we can build a community and culture of love, empathy, education, and collaborative spirit.
