Speakers:


Odion Welch

Odion Welch

Odion has joked that she is a permanent student as she loves learning. With multiple certificates, degrees, and designations she looks to share her knowledge so others do not have to struggle. While fighting depression, supporting a growing financial brokerage, and pursuing her masters she realized how important communication is. She realized we can all achieve our goals and dreams through knowledge and support.


After spending the majority of her life pushing the hard button she decided to share her journey to make life simpler for those around her. Odion desires for others to learn and grow through her trials.
Through her recent book “Breakthrough” she advocates for the need for individuals suffering from depression to communicate. Overcoming depression and anxiety is done together so she encourages you to spread your wings on the journey of self-discovery with her.
