Marti is a travel agent who lives in Thousand Oaks, California. After 10 years in the travel business, the coronavirus pandemic rapidly put the brakes on it- there were virtually no trips to plan. Fortunately, she was beginning a transition into wellness coaching, and with the pandemic she’s pushed her new career into overdrive.
She talks about the stresses and challenges of working as a travel agent, and her and her family’s budget cutbacks as a result of the fallout from COVID-19, but she also expresses her excitement for her new career in wellness, which she’s come to from her own experience with depression and autoimmune issues, which she is beginning to impart to her clients via one-on-one coaching, teaching classes and article writing.
