After battling bipolar disorder for years, I have made it my mission to put a real face on mental illness. My informative, educational and entertaining presentations and group discussions challenge the many misconceptions surrounding these debilitating diseases. People are already discussing these issues. I add fact and insight to the conversation. Additionally, I am the executive director of Speak our Mind, a nonprofit (501(c)(3) pending) that trains speakers to educate and inform others in community settings on the topic of mental illness.
I have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the Columbus Dispatch, Columbus Monthly, SNP newspapers, the NAMI Advocate, several blogs and newsletters, corporate training videos, government promotional and awareness videos and on WCMH NBC 4, WBNS CBS 10, several radio broadcasts, multiple podcasts and more!
