Licensed Peer Supporter
Hello there! My name is Milan and I am a professional wellness consultant and peer provider with lived experience as a multiple attempt survivor, domestic abuse overcomer, and I am living with a complex terminal illness. I am also the parent to 2 wonderful adult children: One received a diagnosis of a dual diagnosis disorder and is an accomplished artist. My 2nd child was diagnosed as neurodivergent at age 5 and is a laboratory manager and a great human being. Your truth, experience, & hope matter to me and I am here to listen!
With over 20 years of service in peer advocacy, disability rights, healthcare equity, & mutual aid space, Milan has proven to be a formidable leader & facilitator. Elder suicide & isolation prevention, community grief & emotional support counseling, championing unserved & underserved communities of color via direct peer service & advocacy, a licensed minister & NFDA's 2018 Professional Woman of the Year for her merit & service as a death doula, especially for those impacted by suicide & terminal illness- I have NOT walked in your shoes, yet I bet we've traveled down some of the same paths!
