I've struggled with depression and addiction since I was 14 years old. I have attempted suicide multiple times in my life, as an adolescent and as an adult. I have spent years battling a horrible eating disorder and gender identity issues. At one point I was homeless living out of my car as a result of my depression and addiction.
These last few years I’ve worked hard to put my life back together. My career in the health and wellness field has given me purpose. It’s time for me to pay forward the gift of life that has so freely been given back to me. It’s time to expand my scope and take my efforts worldwide to end the stigma associated with mental illness.
I’ve been sober and abstinent from my eating disorder since 2010. This is the longest period in my life that I have been clean. It is through my personal road to recovery that has led me to form Tangible Movement.
