This week's podcast features my amazing friend from England, Sarah Woodbridge.  Sarah did what most immigrants do when they come to the country.  They travel around, see the sights, find a good job and settle down. 

Sarah did most of that, but a migraine headache and a bad back sent Sarah on a downward spiral of drug addiction which fragmented her life and family.  Yet, Sarah proves that passion, purpose, and hope all provide a path out of the darkness.  Sarah is a perfect example of what it takes to be human and to truly learn from mistakes.  She's a true badass and I'm honored to be her friend. You will be too.
