I am passionate about connecting with people and breaking the stigma of mental health. I have worked in the nonprofit space for nearly 20 years but my role with 211 Broward is a perfect match for me as it aligns with my core values.
211 Broward is a 24/7 comprehensive crisis helpline that also connects the community to valuable resources. For over a decade, I have been proud to serve as their Chief Advancement & Community Relations Officer.
My degree from Barry University holds an emphasis in psychology. I believe that, combined with my certification from iPec Coaching as a life and business coach is what has enabled me to succeed in this industry, particularly within the health and wellness community.
I have always been on a personal quest for self-development and self improvement. I continue to be an avid reader on the topic, attend various workshops on the subject matter, including two weeks with The Mind Body Center, and often attend wellness classes focused on the mind-body connection. Several years ago, I decided to share these passions on my social media platform Trays Journey.
I’m excited to witness the trend of organizations recognizing the value of having their teams apply these principles to not only enhance their performance and productivity, but also enhance their lives and better support work-life balance.
Beyond 211 Broward, I volunteer for several local non-profits including The O.J. McDuffie Family Foundation, and The Russell Reading Room.
