Tina Kraz
Special Guest Interview: Tina Kranz
You may already know Tina as one of Main Stay's long-time riding instructors but you may not know that she is also a mental health advocate and is the cofounder of the Isa Kranz Foundation, a nonprofit organization, which she founded in memory of her daughter, Isa.

Tina's life was forever changed after her daughter, Isa, lost her life to suicide in 2012. Tina and her husband, left shattered, would have never expected to lose their hilarious, smart, goofy, kind, creative, beautiful, young daughter to suicide. Tina and her family's grief took different forms but kindness and advocacy were collective ones. Now, a decade later, Tina details how she has made it her mission to share Isa's story and bring awareness to mental health issues, like suicide.

To help us bring awareness to this important topic, Tina graciously offered to sit down with us to share Isa's story, provide her advice to those struggling with mental health and details the incredible work that's being done at the Isa Kranz Foundation.

We understand this can be a heavy topic for some, so we have split Tina's interview into 3 parts. You can access them at anytime using the links below.

*Please know that all videos contain content about the topic of suicide*
