As she rode her Harley down Ventura Boulevard, Amberly was hit by an SUV, throwing her thirty feet down a busy street and shattering her right leg. Despite an arduous recovery process, being a former professional dancer and athlete she was determined to walk again and return to work as a fitness trainer.

I've been looking forward to the release of the podcast. While personally I haven't faced adversity; knowing others who have, and have had to work with them through that adversity has really brought the subject close to my heart. I can't wait for further podcasts! Appreciate everything that you do. To bring attention to something which really needs it, the effort and thought brought to the topic is something that a lot of people need. Had the people that I care about had the opportunity to hear yours and others' stories would have helped the situation much sooner.
