I am so excited to introduce today’s guest, Kelly Flynn! Kelly is an amazing soul who goes above and beyond in serving her community. She was a single mom who felt a nudge that there was more to life and decided to become a surrogate to support families who cannot carry their own children into the world. Through that experience, Kelly learned more about the surrogacy process and felt it could be improved. So she has started a surrogacy and egg donation agency with a friend who also was a surrogate. In her spare time, Kelly is growing a PR agency for wellness businesses. This woman is a POWERHOUSE you will not want to miss this episode!

Podcast IG Post_DrSarahRoseberry.png

Today’s guest is Dr. Sarah Roseberry, DC. When Sarah was 17 years old she was a professional ballerina (so cool!). While dancing, she broke her hip and was given two options: surgery or chiropractic care and physical therapy. She chose to heal herself via chiropractic care and physical therapy which changed the trajectory of her life. Within 2 months, she was dancing again and knew she wanted to be a chiropractor. In this episode, she shares valuable insight on what chiropractic care can do for your body, her own health scares and the importance of being your own advocate. I hope you love as much as I do!

Hey guys!

In my first ever podcast episode, I share about how I came up with the idea to create a podcast all around women sharing their stories of health. I believe that the more we share openly about our health experiences that it reduces the stigma around having them.

I have some amazing guests and episodes lined up for you guys! From the woman who had 5 miscarriages and discovered that she had thyroid cancer while trying to conceive to a woman who left a high paid and high power corporate job because she was burnt out.

This is a place where you find your tribe. You are NOT alone in whatever you’re dealing with.
