Yesterday, I spent my lunch break sprinting through Times Square in heels with my coworkers trying to catch a free performance by the queen herself, Ms. @carrieunderwood. 👑

Thank you, @nashfm947, for this incredible opportunity. Without hesitation, it was definitely worth almost rolling my ankles. #CryPretty #albumrelease #nashnation

Today. September 10th. #WorldSuicidePreventionDay. Today is much more than just a hashtag or social media trend to me. Today highlights a cause, a call to action that I try to instill in my daily life. Today and every day, I fight to #shatterthestigma surrounding #mentalillness because I know what it’s like to have to say a premature and permanent goodbye. I know the pain of dealing with the after-effects of a person’s suicide. Those of us at @rickyscompasscp have seen mental illnesses destroy lives. We have seen them take away beautiful human beings, and we have experienced the brokenness caused by such a preventable tragedy. Today, I want those suffering to know that I care, and I am here for you. And to those who have been blessed with the rarity of never having to battle with their own minds, I ask you to reach out to the people around you, even the strong ones. I ask you to be empathetic. I ask you to be compassionate. I ask you to love on those who might just seem unlovable. The only way we can save lives is if we show people their life is worth saving. Give them a shoulder to cry on. Give them a space to breathe. Give them time to vent and heal. Stop the isolation. 🦋


Two days ago, Ricky’s Compass hosted our very first Mental Health and Wellness Event. Two days ago, I experienced the importance of community. Two days ago, I saw people come together for one common cause. I pray that we all continue to support each other. I pray that we do better. I pray that the legacy of all of those who have lost their lives to mental illnesses continues to make a difference. I pray that we fight to show others that their life does matter. No matter what your race, religion, political views, orientation, socio-economic status, no matter who you are, your life is worth saving. Imagine if we each could save just #OneLife 💚

Thanks for liking me even when blink said you wouldn’t 🎈 #23

I paid $18 for a drink, and then proceeded to spill half of it. This is why we can’t have nice things 🍹🤷🏻‍♀️ •

Thanks to Mitchy and Peteski for sending me to the #reputationstadiumtour to kick off my last week of #feeling22

Wilkes U ain’t ready for your poses, baby cakes 👩🏼‍🎓 #doctorofpharmacy #fambam #iateallthefood

Grateful for coworkers who make working on the #FourthofJuly as breezy as the #EastRiver 🇺🇸

I drag people down the shore for country concerts. They just build castles in the sand 🏖 #acbeachconcerts

Holler if you’re ready for some summer nights 🌞🏖 #BackToUsTour

August 29, 2017- the very last conversation I had with Rick.
Less than one year later, Melissa, Alexandra, and I are proud to say that Ricky’s epiphany has officially become a reality. Within one week of applying, we received an official notification that Ricky’s Compass is now a 501(c)(3). •

RICK, YOU ARE THE NAMESAKE OF A NONPROFIT. Thank you, my angel, for paving the way and allowing us to bring education and awareness to such an important topic, #mentalhealth. •

Thank you to every individual who believed in us. It truly takes a village. There were MANY doors slammed in our faces, yet here we stand, three women with a nonprofit before the age of 25. •

Ally and Mel, I am so grateful to be on this journey with you two incredible humans. Till we’re raisins 💚

sorry we couldn’t save you, my sweet little bambino 🦌
