About the Advocate
Corinne Goyette received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art from Sam Houston State University. There, she learned to love watercolor, the medium used in the eepworm® books. She is also a public speaker advocating for people with mental health special needs, since she struggles with several brain disorders herself, such as ADHD and autism. Having experienced very extreme emotions since she was a young child, Corinne was moved to help other children, especially those who feel the way she does. She hopes that sharing the knowledge and tools she has gained will benefit children and their helpers everywhere.
Corinne gives interviews and presentations to children and adults at early childhood conferences about how it felt like as a child with brain disorders and how she is managing them as an adult. Additionally, she speaks about her eepworm® book series, in which her character, eepworm, helps comfort children as they deal with strong emotions. She has been featured on The “D” Suite Radio Show and the We Read Initiative of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation.
