Finding a passion in management, I received my degree in Business Administration and began my professional career at Amazon, launching the new fulfillment center in Gardner, Kansas. During my tenure at Amazon, I was passionate about building my team and investing in others. It was in my transition to night shift, I began to experience mental health struggles and decided to leave my position. The next two years, I navigated my way through anxiety and depression with the help of loved ones, friends and educating myself on mental health. After reflecting on this experience, I realized I was not on my own in experiencing mental health struggles while making the difficult transition from a structured environment to the “real world.”
That’s where the Go Further Foundation comes in. Motivated by my personal experiences, I was inspired to create a community where vulnerability is viewed as a strength, where we put value on profesional growth and support personal development. The Go Further Foundation is a community that exists to support that transition into adulthood and be a constant reminder that nobody is on their journey alone.
