Ms. Nobling has lived a life almost entirely impacted by severe and persistent mental illness. Her father’s diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia was made when she was seven. Her sister, born with mild developmental disabilities, was later diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder.Her mother’s compassion and determination and her father’s strength, grace and humor as he made his way into years of managed recovery were inspiring. It imbued her with a passion for work that respects and dignifies people who are different.
As Executive Director of NAMI Davidson her primary goal is to help people find the tools to bring them into mental wellness and to reach their full potential.
