Clarene's Story 



 I am a pioneer in preparing others for the many pathways available in the Peer Support, Mental, and Behavioral Health workforce pathways. I am a person with lived experience with racism, discrimination, stigma, healing, food, disability, mental health justice, and socioeconomic disparity. I am a mother, wife, kingdom-based entrepreneur, social justice advocate, peer support, culturally responsive healing-centered peer support specialist, licensed counselor, and self-taught Chef- instructor.


My vision and purpose is to be a change agent promoting and providing peers and community members with opportunities to experience culturally responsive services that uplift and embrace the riches of the historically Black American practices of peer-to-peer support, the tradition of using food as medicine, faith, preservation of the sharing of culturally inspired meals and memories, theatre, cultural arts.


I have diverse levels of academic achievement, certifications, and engagement in community service leadership that reflect my commitment to life-long learning, growing spiritually, and community involvement. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business administration with an emphasis in Organizational Leadership in 2012 from Fresno Pacific University. Subsequently, I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from California State University, Fresno in 2017. I am a National Certified Rehabilitation CounselorWellness Recovery Action Plan facilitator, Mental Health First Aid Responder, and Military Counseling. Presently, I am an elected member of the CALMHSA Peer Stakeholder Council since 2020 California's implementation of the Certified Peer Specialist certification. From 2017-2020 I served as a selected Peer Ambassador with Cal Access. Currently, I am a member of the Leadership Council Community Participatory Action Research Project.

I am a well-seasoned and visionary Kingdom-based entrepreneur and non-profit servant leader modeling serving with excellence and seasoning everything with love. In all that I do I wholeheartedly, help myself and others build up the legacy of the best versions of ourselves, peers, and other people, by
