Anne Lamott said, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including YOU!”
Covid caused many of us to hit a pause button, including today’s guest.
When life slowed down, she finally admitted she was in a sexually abusive relationship for three years and realized she deserved better. This pause button was a reset button for her and she reinvented her career and more importantly, her mental health!
Her message is that healing never stops. Survivors are not alone and we are fighting to make the world a better place.
Meet Lisa Rae Bowman. Lisa is from Brooklyn, NY and a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design for film. Lisa has worked in the film industry and has worked on various TV shows and movies. Then COVID hit! The pandemic has been the catalyst for Lisa’s own self reinvention. When the world stopped turning and life slowed down, Lisa was left alone with her own thoughts and was forced to look within to address her own mental health. It was through this healing process from sexual and emotional abuse that Lisa left the movie industry and transitioned her career to communications. She’s now the advocacy coordinator for an online community of survivors, running campaigns to empower conversations between survivors and allies.
Lisa’s reinvention is a mental health reinvention!
