About the Speakers:


Host: Vanessa Meadows is a Certified Mental Health Speaker (NAMI). Whole-body wellness is important for everyone, especially as an actress where one’s body is their instrument. Being a professional actress (SAG-AFTRA) Vanessa is always looking to improve in all areas to perform at her best level. This was her inspiration to become more educated in a mind-body approach to living. Her love of education led her to become certified. Since 2015 she has volunteered her time as a "health-esteem" guide with those suffering from mental and emotional health concerns and has lead private workshops. Recently, she has begun to offer these services to the public. Vanessa is also the nonprofit founder of beCause parties!


Guest Speaker: Shannon Kitchen is a Wellness Educator for Young Living Essential Oils. At this workshop, Shannon will share the benefits that essential oils can have on stress-related issues including sleep, immunity, focus, mood, tummy troubles, respiratory issues, and more. She will also touch on how approaching physical and emotional wellness through more natural means might be an option to consider.


*Shannon will not be distributing or selling any products at this workshop. Her role is for educational purposes only.
