However the story that few are privy to is the story of her life journey from the darkness into the light. Dr. Indigo underwent treatment at a treatment center after her world spiraled out of control. She was working on her Ph.D., raising a family, managing her multimillion dollar business, and speaking around the world. She did all of this while feeling as if she was going insane. She was diagnosed with a mood disorder and PTSD, and she can attest that she was a textbook case for the disorders with bizarre behaviors that she shares with audiences and within her latest book.
By doing the work, she was able to pull herself from the abyss with the help of mental health professionals, spiritual advisors, the support of her family, and understanding and collaborative employees. Being a giving spirit, Dr. Indigo has been called to share her story and gifts with others. She formed Indigo Insights to help people with mental health challenges learn to embrace their mental condition and thrive. She speaks, coaches, and teaches courses about mental health challenges from a holistic and personal viewpoint.
Dr. Indigo has received many awards and recognitions for her life’s work in Human Resources, and she has now devoted her life to human kind. It is more than a calling, but rather a ministry for her as she shares with others practical tools and techniques that allow her to manage her condition with great success. She weaves humor with a poignant look at reality for people who live with dis-ease, people who live with those with dis-ease, and those who work with people with dis-ease. She says that she had to lose nearly everything to truly find herself, and now she serves as a success GPS for others. She helps people to find tranquility, serenity and balance when everything seems chaotic and uncertain.
She served in the U.S. Marine Corps, before earning her Associates Degree in Psychology and Journalism, a Bachelor of Arts in Radio and Television with a Minor in Psychology, a Master of Arts in Human Resources Development with an emphasis in Counseling, and a Ph.D. in Values Driven Leadership.
