I was injured in 2010 by a prescribed dose of Ambien. Five years later, once I discovered how to free myself from the pharmaceutical trap and began to heal, I started my Benzo Brains YouTube channel. Since that time I have co-founded the Benzodiazepine Information Coalition, The Council for Sustainable Healing and have served as an advisor to The Alliance for Benzodiazepine Best practices. My memoir Seeds of Hope: A Journey Through Medication and Madness Toward Meaning was published in 2020 by Moonglade Press. I also have various blogs published by Mad in America, The Mormon Women Project and Kelly Brogan.
