Olinda Ricard-Hodge

Hi, I'm Olinda Ricard-Hodge, the founder and manager of Grassroots Business Consulting, LLC., an agency focused on supporting aspiring entrepreneurs, small businesses, and small non-profits and expanding the capacity of the Peer Specialist Workforce.  Why?

I am a Certified Peer Specialist. I use my lived experiences in managing my mental health challenges and experiences of supporting and advocating for my children to support others.

I can relate to the unique barriers experiencing abuse and trauma, navigating woefully flawed systems, and having limited access to information, education, and resources can have on achieving one's entrepreneurial dreams.

One of my greatest desires is to break the stigmas that place crippling limitations on individuals who experience mental health and substance use challenges and eliminate the debilitating restrictions placed on the formally incarcerated.
