Our Founder, F. Walker

“Growing up in New Orleans, LA I was able to personally experience the many hardships that we are often exposed to. We all have our personal struggles in life that sometimes seem impossible to overcome, but quitting is not an option. Together we can pull through and beat the odds set before us.”

Our CEO, K. Stepter

“Having been challenged myself with mental stress, along with family members who have experienced mental or behavioral issues; my number one priority is fighting the mental health stigma that plagues our community. It’s very important that we all cater to our mental health and have an outlet for relief.
