She has a simple, uplifting and refreshing style that helps many transform how they feel about themselves and their struggles. She’s faced many challenges with anxiety, disabilities, life and businesses, and yet (or exactly because of it!) she came out on top as a strong business woman, the proud Owner, CEO and President of multiple companies. She’s constantly learning and am passionate about expanding my knowledge.
There is one simple thing she’d like everyone to understand: you are not broken. She spent a lot of her life feeling broken and has dedicated her life to making sure not only you, but every single person understands this very baseline truth. Misconceptions, lackluster education and the lack of general awareness had created a stigma, but the person that can fight it? It’s you. Maybe you already are, maybe you just want to, but one thing is certain: you can. She is, as plenty of others, every single day of their lives, with or without disabilities of their own, and the thing that binds it all together? The realization that challenge and disability doesn’t equal disadvantage.
Just as an example, here are her three most popular topics:
"The invisible woman unlocking the unique power of misunderstood people with mental health challenges and disabilities"
“They see me but they don’t really see me" - This topic is tailored to all audiences whether they are people who live with these challenges themselves, or it’s their loved ones, co-workers, bosses, and even people who don't have any personal or family experiences with mental health issues and disabilities. She likes to focus on general understanding, correcting misconceptions and teaching people how to talk about it and side-step the stigma. Turning disabilities into "abilities" and how we can embrace our challenges and use them to our advantage! She likes to do this in a fun and light-hearted way because people are less awkward and more inclined to be involved.
"The things we know but do not say - Love languages of mental health challenges and disabilities"
