This is one of the most raw, honest, incredibly vulnerable interviews I've ever done. Being a Mom isn't always a happy thing and Amee tells us why she felt that way, how she really felt, what she did about it and how she moves forward within it.
Her goal is to spread awareness through honest & accessible conversations with experts as well as share stories from other Broken Moms. The evidence is in the science (real biology & neuroscience) that our childhood experiences are a part of our brain development and if we experienced adversity or toxic stress, we have neural pathways formed from them. THAT was the part that made the difference for me. But we also have mental health stigmas that prevent us from talking openly. She put herself ALL the way out there - and it works. However, talking about childhood trauma is really actually hard because people don't know how to do it without pissing off their family or making their parents feel bad. So, her show and purpose is to do this all without judgment or shame.
Ameé has been writing since she can remember.
However, because she born with the brain of a polymath and also showed equally strong abilities in the sciences and math, she was nudged in the direction of engineering by well-meaning adults.
Without guidance on how she could do both, she abandoned writing for the pursuit of a more "practical" career.
She swore, though, that when she grew up - she would become a writer.
That day is now.
Naturally curious, Ameé thrives on learning new things, which has made her a vigorous student of the world around us.
Today, her research and essays are centered on unlocking the keys to our past experiences and how they govern our lives today as adults through behavior as well as health.
She blends scientific research with personal experience as well as holding space for religious and spiritual philosophy.
