Everyone can overcome a trauma with the right training! Today's guest is Dr. Kemia Sarraf, Founder and CEO of Lodestar, where they conduct highly personalized and professional trauma-informed coaching that advances the client in their professional and personal life. Dr. Sarraf earned a Master of Public Health, a Bachelor of Medicine, and completed her residency in Internal Medicine.
