I am a survivor, fighter, friend, sister, and daughter. I am a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro studying Public Health and Non-Profit Work. One day I hope to grow Strong Beautiful Capable into a National Organization and a strong community for all survivors to come and grow together.
I'm from Chicago and started at Utah State University in 2012. I recently graduated with a B.S. in Economics, a B.S. in Business Administration, a B.A. in Marketing, an Masters of Business Administration, with minors in French and HR Management. I was in a sorority around the same time as Morgan and we both left around the same time. I worked as the USU Hockey Team General Manager. I started with SBC because Morgan is such an empowering and special person, and I truly believe int he cause and I think it's so important, especially in world we live in today. I also love my dog, Sam, more than anything in this world.
Darren was born and raised in Pocatello and graduated from Highland High School in 2010 with the opportunity to attend Utah State University. While attending Utah State he was the facilitator of the USU Strength and Conditioning program that served over 150 students and athletes a semester. During this time he also competed nationally in Olympic Weightlifting and has since been named a National Coach for the United States Of America Weightlifting Association. Darren first met Morgan when he was training and helping her through her recovery process without having knowledge of her journey in the beginning. It solidified the idea to Darren that that health and overall wellness can help with record.
CFO and Collaboration
Morgan and I became friends during our time in the Master's of Public Health program at UNC Greensboro. Being passionate about sexual and reproductive health, I was excited when Morgan wanted to bring me into the Strong Beautiful Capable family. She approached me with the desire to incorporate health education into the work of Strong Beautiful Capable. We are building the foundation for programming using evidence-based practices and trauma-informed care principles
