It wasn’t until she lost her father to suicide in 2015 that she realized that production wasn’t just about entertaining or networking; it is also highly therapeutic.
By utilizing art, dance, music and video, she is developing inspiring events to promote mental wellness and create platforms for open dialogue about suicide and the stigma surrounding it. These events bring communities and families together to empower, educate and entertain.
