In 2014, I had the honor of sharing my story of managing my Postpartum Depression (PPD) after our twins were born. Angie Goff, the reporter who interviewed me, was so kind and gracious during the interview and although I was nervous before it was aired, I had no reason to be. Angie shared my emotions in a way that made me proud of my story. The response from my family and friends was amazing. This interview was the beginning of my desire to Own It Daily.
After my interview with NBC Washington (above), I had a whole new mission on my mind. I wanted to use my illness for good, not be ashamed of something I had no control over receiving and bring awareness. I partnered with a great non-profit called “This Is My Brave” and asked them if I could raise money through my first half-marathon training for their theater performances that focus on mental health. The team and I raised over $5k for Brave to continue their amazing mission to show that storytelling can save lives. The above link is to the article our local newspaper did on the fundraising effort.
I would be honored to come speak to your non-profit, for-profit, faith-based group, wellness fairs etc to share my story with hope to inspire the audience to realize a mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of and the value fitness can play in their daily lives.
