The College helps transform students live’s and I feel blessed to witness this on day to day basis. When I was a student I found the courses so powerful. I did most of the courses and took something from each course, it has now become part of my mental health tool box.
I use my lived experience with Bi-polar, anxiety, depression, agoraphobia, etc to teach and help students deal with their own issues. I love my job and the people I work with. I love seeing the transformation in students, to see them on their first day so nervous and carrying the weight of the world to then see them in a happier place full of hope still wows me to this day.
I have two children who I love dearly. I love spending time with my family and friends. I have dealt with mental health issues most of my life, that is why I’m very passionate about spreading the word that recovery is possible.
