Aug 7, 2018

On today’s show I have the pleasure of chatting with another wonderful multi-passionate, former attorney Jaya Saxena. Jaya is a Diversity & Inclusion Strategist, attorney turned Wellness/Career coach, social justice advocate and mama of two. We chat about how she incorporates her training of wellness and health into her practice, her passion for social injustice, and so much more. Enjoy!


What you’ll learn:

  • The power of choice
  • Jaya’s journey in the law
  • What spurred Jaya’s transition out of the law
  • Why we should all be hopeful for our future
  • Tips to managing your mental health
  • The connection between health & wellness and inclusion & diversity
  • The importance of authenticity

Best Advice for Finding Happiness


“Our ability to bring our authentic self to the world.”


“Think about one thing that you can share with others...that they don’t know about you.”


“What is one thing you can do to live more authentically?”
