"I have been on many sides of depression. I struggled with severe and chronic episodes of depression for several years in the early 1990s.
"In response to this profound experience, I came to focus my research on the study of depression. I received my Ph.D. in Psychology in 2003 and joined the faculty at the University of South Florida.
"Most recently, I have continued to be an advocate for people who struggle with depression."
