new podcast episode:

Making art as a career, living with multiple sclerosis diagnosis, and giving permission to redefine yourself with Leah Devora

In today’s episode, I spoke with Leah Devora about her journey as a career artist, and the shift she had to take in her career after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) and how that caused her to make adjustments to her life over the last eight years. We dive into some of her background in the art world, her love for animal rescues, and the importance of mindset. One thing I loved was her sharing about how we have a chance to redefine who we are each and every day. Her focus on not being defined as, “the girl with MS” and how she aims to live life to the fullest despite struggles.
