Hi! Last year I challenged myself to participate as a model ambassador for NAMI. This year I pushed harder to give my heart & soul as Co-Chair to make this event the success I believe it to be.
This new year continues to empower me. I’m one of millions who personally struggle with mental illness. The fuel behind my engine is my beautiful 16-year-old daughter who inspires me to fight through the darkest of days.
At 46, I strive to be a better version of who I was yesterday. I love my family, my friends & all who support with encouragement and without judgment. As the “average Jo” who doesn’t come to the table with a list of accomplishments, a big name, money or power, I hope my actions & story will motivate another person like me to be hopeful and become involved.
Wishing you love & peace,
