I’m passionate about the power of open-mindedness.

I speak about daring to explore your unknown, ask questions, and rethink your assumptions. My favorite topics are mental health recovery, self-love, empowerment, dialogue and echo chambers, and free exchange of ideas.

I love to share my stories of inspiration with others and hear theirs — whether it’s in workshops, panels, podcasts, article features, and more.
