Sunshine and Coffee Podcast
Essex, Ontario
I've always wanted to make a big impact. I've lived an average life -- but always wanted to do more. In 2014 I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder and I began a YouTube channel speaking about it. Through YouTube I was granted my first opportunity to speak to a live audience. That day I found a spark. I found what I was destined to do! That day changed my life. I found how I was going to empower others -- I was going to tell my story. Since 2017 I have been featured on multiple podcasts surrounding mental health and spoke on mental health panels. However, since I don't drive and with Covid, I also had to pivot my story sharing. This is how Sunshine and Coffee Podcast was born. Now I share my story in bits and pieces, but I also help others share their stories. Some are funny, others are serious but they're all inspiring. I want to make a change in the world and I think I'm finally doing it.
During the day, outside of the podcast, I'm a Child and Youth Worker and Educational Assistant. I work at a local daycare and absolutely love it!
