Sharon had spent the majority of her career traveling internationally and nationally as a corporate meeting and event planner, when the 2020 pandemic brought her work to a standstill. During a severe depressive episode, a lightbulb came on and she felt moved to find an opportunity to serve and find work that was more meaningful to her life and regain hope and healing. Because many family members, including herself, struggle with moderate to severe mental health issues, discovering NAMI SF, became the obvious choice to start that journey and she decided to volunteer by facilitating the
BIPOC and Peer Support Groups and found healing through the service of sharing her story, as well as offering support to others. She is honored to have gained the opportunity to fulfill a higher role as the BIPOC Cultural Facilitator, Presenter & Educator
