Make a Difference With Mental Health Activism  (1) COVER (1).jpg

In my personal life, I am a long-time member of and volunteer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). I have served as a chapter president and am a certified classroom instructor for the NAMI program Family-to-Family. I brought those years of experience to my writing of Make a Difference with Mental Health Activism
Long ago and far away. . . after receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications from the University of South Florida in Tampa, I began a career as a technical writer of software instruction manuals for telecommunications, insurance, cartography, and freight logistics companies, as well as corporate policy and procedure documentation and employee benefits handbooks.
