Back in 2007, I was diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder and it took over my life.. I've been through divorce, lost my mother, lost my home, lost my job and lost my sense of self. It was painful felt like a failure. So I got the courage, went to rehab and received help.
The journey was a long road to recovery but I now live a healthy balanced life. As a Mental Health Advocate, I use my voice to help people and communities overcome adversity.
My book, A Fresh Start helps readers get past their fears and failures and now my story has become other people's survival guide. Being an advocate is important to me because I believe the only way we’re going to remove the judgment and discrimination surrounding mental health is by sharing our stories. My life mission is to leave this planet a better place than I found it making sure everyone felt loved.
