I received my doctorate in pharmacy in 2014 after attending Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy at East Tennessee State University. This launched the journey to building Prescribe Love. After working 6 years in the field, and assisting countless patients, I still felt I was without purpose and direction. I went into the medical field because I wanted to help others; what was missing?
Since childhood, I have struggled with depression, anxiety, and body image. My sexual identity also presented challenges. As a child I was bullied, shamed, and lived in fear of who I was. Despite that, I persevered and I did so because I had a support network built on love. This network did not always look the way I wanted it to, but it was enough--love was enough. It is why I continue to grow and combat my personal struggles. Now in my adult years, I have come to realize that love isn't just enough, it is everything! Love was a medicine that healed wounds and allowed me the strength to fight.
Through Prescribe Love, my hope is to give people a platform to establish support networks through prescriptions of love to youth (and adults) struggling with any myriad of hurt. Let love do the work; it needs no degree, only action. So be the love you want to see; we are all qualified to prescribe love.
