Unapologetically Overcoming

This podcast is about overcoming the stigmas that society has placed on so many of us, myself included. I will be interviewing guests and helping to put a face to so many of the labels society has created. I want to normalize talking about difficult experiences and help people recognize they are not alone on their journey.
