Kody is also the Founder of a non-profit, a motivational speaker and content creator with over 1 million followers on TikTok. He has struggled in the past with drug addiction, incarceration, and serious mental health issues.
In order to be a better advocate and speaker, Kody has been trained as a peer support specialist, recovery coach and suicide prevention specialist.
Now, Kody shares his stories about his struggles and how to navigate through recovery, mental health issues, and life after incarceration. He chooses to pursue motivational speaking and mental health advocacy for schizophrenia awareness, drug recovery and second- chance opportunities because he has dealt with these struggles in his own life.
"After my release from incarceration and my schizophrenia diagnosis, I thought there was nothing left for me. When I started sharing my story online, I did not think anyone would care. After gaining 1 million followers on social media, I realized how my struggles and my story could help others."
