“Storytelling saves lives” is not just her nonprofit’s motto; it’s 100 percent true. Marshall is executive director and co-founder of This Is My Brave, a nonprofit dedicated to ending the societal stigma around mental health and celebrating successes by those dealing with mental health challenges.

Washingtonian magazine named Marshall one of its 2018 Washingtonian of the Year honorees, recognizing her as one of 10 people working to make the Washington, D.C., area a better place.

“It is an incredible honor to receive this award on behalf of my team,” said the Loudoun County, Virginia, resident, who returned to campus in May to speak at the 2019 Women for Madison Summit. “We are changing the way the world views mental illness and addiction, one story at a time.”
