My name is DeRae and I work locally in sales. In my spare time, I manage social media for Gray Meetings and Events. I’m active in community and the food and beverage industry. I also have a blog, Shades-of-Shame, that allows me to share my experiences as someone that advocates for mental health and has survived a colorful childhood. I love helping women grow from their experiences and showing them that asking for help isn’t a weakness.
