Episode notes

Like most people that choose corrections as a career, Sammy was on a mission to help people. Little did she know that she would have to sacrifice herself in the process. A single mom who was trying do it all: hold down a career, manage her family, and suppress the negative emotions that were taking over - she turned to alcohol to mitigate the stress, and the pain. In October 2021, Sammy was diagnosed with PTSD, depression, and severe anxiety disorder. Her absence from work led her down the path of self-discovery where she learned that in addition to helping people she also loved to entertain - which led Sammy to start a podcast - Keep it Simple Sammy. And another podcast with her friend Gen - Holy Hood. With a new outlook on life, a vision, and some positive coping strategies Sammy is ready to take on the world.
