Thanks to Authority Magazine for featuring my 5 Things Anyone Can Do To Optimize Their Mental Wellness.
Excerpted from Authority Magazine:
Thank you so much for doing this with us! Our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit better. Can you share with us the backstory about what brought you to your specific career path?
I was led to my career path the way I think a lot of people end up with theirs: via a long, windy road! I never intended to go into healing and writing self-help books. I was a marketing director for Harley-Davidson and my passion was writing for marketing and advertising purposes. But at 25 years old, I became debilitatingly ill with Lyme disease and it changed the trajectory for my life. I was on disability for several years as I scoured for a cure. I did go back to marketing for a while after my miraculous recovery, but it turned out that my calling was slightly different than what I was doing. I kept writing but instead of creating copy to sell Harleys, I began to write about my healing journey in the hopes of helping others discover all the ways in which we come to true health, both physically and emotionally. It turns out there were a lot of people looking for that information and I was off and running from there!
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your career?
