While this site and show alone and the content and tools will not solve all your problems, it will most certainly provide you with tangible ways to make your mind, mood, body and holistic wellbeing brighter and a whole lot more well. It can help you heal, grow and celebrate life in healthy ways and it will challenge you to re-write your story of the past, present and future! It took me decades of personal research and professional studies to finally find some real answers to wellness and changing the way I saw life and I truly want to pass those stories and solutions on to you as we embark on this journey together!
We are so often told health is an outside job, but it's not. It's an inside one. We are so often told we can do things alone, but we can't. We need people. That is what we are here for at WellSeekers. community, connection and compassion. Life can make it difficult to get well, but we want to change that, and provide the information you need to make changes, to write and re-write your stories and to celebrate, nurture and heal. I know from experience how hard it is to take time for yourself, but I also know from experience…it’s worth it.
From my own professional career, from an early age I expressed my stories with music going on to play in some of the most well known venues in New York, Las Vegas, LA and all over New England, recording with Grammy award winning producers and having my music placed in Tv and films, before changing my microphone out from the stage to the airwaves. When I was on air, first at iheart, and then nationally, I tried to create a place where all sorts of people celebrities, community members, and my listeners felt like they were at home. Whether I was on a red carpet or back stage, I knew it didn’t matter, what mattered was the story and the people I was with. From there my journey took me to TV, where I got a few Emmy nominations for hosting primetime on the CW, before sharing more stories nationally that focused on all things Good News. Through it all though, I felt like not only did I love sharing stories, but helping finding solutions, which now is my goal with this show and all the shows I produce.Dave works in marketing and I work in education so naturally, we're both very people-oriented people. As an educator, I love information and I love telling people information that I find interesting or intriguing. Naturally, the podcast is sort of an extension of that. Over the years in teaching, I've seen how interesting information can really connect people. We both love conversations, but really conversations that you learn from. Commute makes sense when you connect these factors, we're making the show ultimately because we both love watching ideas unite people together in conversation.
Welcome back to WellSeekers as we finish up our five part series focusing on cancer.

So join us on this extraordinary series as we want to help you grow and thrive in the face of a cancer diagnosis if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, are living with cancer, know someone dear to you with cancer, or want to prevent this fast growing, deadly and sometimes chronic disease.
On today’s show we welcome back Krista Lawrence, a mom, dear friend, fierce advocate and someone living with stage IV Metastatic breast cancer. Krista offers words of wisdom, comfort, and knowledge that comes from her own experiences with this incurable disease. According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Metastatic Breast Cancer, also known as Stage IV cancer, is not a specific type of breast cancer, but rather the most advanced stage of breast cancer that has spread to other organs in the patient’s body. It is also known as the least understood type of cancer and has no cure. We also talk about why we understand so little about this disease, and how through adversity she uncovered her own secret to life.
