Meet the TeamBoard of Directors

The words that finally sent me on my path to recovery, after years of undiagnosed and untreated mental health issues, were, “Have some compassion for yourself. It doesn’t have to be this hard.”
I’m someone who has come out on the other side of mental health issues. The short, sweet version of my story is now that I have had the help that I desperately needed and am no longer at a point of crisis, I want to support others find the same inner peace that I fought hard for. I understand and have first hand experience of how ridiculously challenging it is to get back on your feet after you fall. The one thing that you must give is something that feels impossible: time. Time for therapy to help. Time to find the correct medications and dosages. Time for your body and mind to heal.
As a result, joining The Board of The Counseling and Recovery Services of Oklahoma (CRSOK) was a natural fit. I love how the team at CRSOK aims to expand mental health care access, is certified in the Sanctuary Model of trauma-informed care, and is normalizing mental health illness. Joining The Board is important to me; it is something I became interested in after overcoming my own mental health struggles. I hope that my direct experience will bring insight that will help improve the mental health care given to our community.
In addition, I am also an entrepreneur and started my first company in June 2018. These days, I actively run into chaos and uncertainty as proof there are no prerequisites to running a company (or two). I’m an author and most recently have been writing painfully honest blog posts that cover entrepreneurial lessons and mental health struggles.
