What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?
I was unable to breath. The demands of my job were manageable or so I thought, what I didn’t realize is that my body was breaking down, I literally couldn’t breathe, my body was telling me I was putting up with too much and it was time to change. It took me four years to get to the right physician for a proper diagnosis and determine I needed surgery. Surgery fixed my physical problem of not being able to breathe, but it did not change the situation, the stress of my job was killing me. What I was putting up with was not reasonable, I needed to find a better way. So, I took my knowledge and experience and wanted to put it to use still saving lives and helping other busy professional women see what can change for them. What is your health worth? I decided mine was not worth my job.
