BEE Daring Foundation
How it all began!
In 2018, I created the BEE Daring Foundation located in Phoenix, Arizona ("BEE Daring Foundation is a fiscally sponsored project of Social Good Fund, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. EIN 46-1323531.). The BEE Daring Foundation’s audience is primarily parents, high school and college students, athletes, and healthcare workers, but our reach goes far beyond that. We are the first Civilian Mental Health Organization to focus on changing the conversation about mental health. As founder and CEO, I know firsthand what it is like living with a mental illness. Diagnosed in 2017 with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, I remember how scared I was. The repercussions of sharing my story for the first time drove me to contemplate suicide in October of 2017. Building my roadmap and creating my BEE Tribe (my support system) saved my life.

- BEE University: Be a student of change, growth, and aspirations, one conversation at a time.
Our mission is to inspire others and grow our diverse community, who share a common goal; to change the conversation, shed labels, break down barriers, and eliminate the stigma around mental health. We show people they are not alone by providing the tools and support to help them find their worth, value, and their gifts to give to society. Using the Bee University platform, a place to access resources such as books, videos, pdf's, tips, recipes, music, movies and much more provides members with a safe place to seek the means for a better tomorrow. Everything is here to help you grow and become who you are meant to be. If it’s not here, we will help you find what you need to continue your roadmap to mental wellness. It is not a one size fits all. In fact, it is not a cure. It is a program where you can create a custom design from a treasure trove of educational and inspirational tools to level up your health and wellness.
We do not offer professional or clinical services in mental health. We are here to help you find your community. Whether that be happiness, prosperity, and peace or the knowledge that you belong, and you are worthy and appreciated. Let’s change the conversation first, by talking about what’s good, courageous and strong about who we are, and releasing the burden of negativity and limiting beliefs.
