If you’re from the St. Louis area, you’ve probably seen Virginia Kerr on TV. She used to be a reporter, news anchor, and lifestyle host. Jill Devine always thought Virginia was full of energy, positivity, and happiness based on what she saw from Virginia on TV. Behind the camera, Virginia was none of those things.
Virginia came from a family that wasn’t great with communication. There were a lot of negative life events Virginia faced, so she turned towards food to eat her feelings away. It was at the age of 13 where she realized she was binge eating. She got help for the binge eating, but when she got older, she started drinking to cope with her feelings. It got to the point where she would drink herself to sleep and wake up every morning at 3am with negative thoughts. Those thoughts told her she was disgusting, and she was worthless. She never knew what it felt like to be happy and she had enough. In November 2018, she stopped drinking.
Once Virginia was sober, she began to recognize her worth and value. Through her television career, she learned a lot about video marketing and sales and she’s taken that knowledge to create a video coaching business. Video on social media is the quickest way to get someone to know you and to build trust and Virginia teaches people how to do this.
In this week’s episode, you will hear Virginia talk about her demons in further detail. You will also hear the advice she has for anyone struggling with an addiction and what she wished she would have had access to when she first realized she had a problem.
