Kami Macey

Executive Director

Kami says she got her start in mental health as she grew into adulthood. She realized that shame, image driven decisions, and judgement were not the ways to live a full life. She began shedding some of those layers and found that her most prized attribute was being honest and authentic. She found that being intentionally authentic, while challenging, brought a greater love for self and others. Realizing how difficult that can be, she tries to create a non-judgemental environment for the people she crosses paths with.
