I am a young, married stay at home mom of three young children. I grew up in the city of Memphis, TN where I attended Cordova High School. Throughout my years in high school, I ran track and field and cross country. After graduating high school, I moved to Knoxville, TN where I obtained an Associate’s Degree in Chemistry from Pellissippi State Community College and a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
I have experienced depression for most of my life. I first experienced depression when I was ten years old. Growing up in a household where we did not regularly mention depression and did not always speak about mental health, I never felt inclined to speak about how I was feeling and what I was thinking.
