Stronger Together Newsletters

Another positive of social distancing… time to create HILARIOUS (and powerful) newsletters. I started because one of my Warriors was having tough day. The newsletters were well received so I continued as a way to share bite-sized healthy habits. May 20: respond vs react…

Giving back & expanding my reach

Getting the juices flowing. I’ve just secured a new gig… I’m going to be a weekly contributor to a very VERY very important non-profit! I’m over the moon excited. It’s going to allow me to stay in the recovery space in a productive way….
