Happy Holidays Liberated Genius Family! 

We're thinking of you this holiday season and excited to work with you in the new year! As you reflect on this past year, remember to be kind, love passionately and believe deeply in the potential that surrounds you. We're looking forward to a promising new year including more conversations of wellness and equity, building our circles of encouragement, lifting each other up and celebrating more moments of discovering the genius within.

Mark your calendars for our upcoming Venture Cafe Wellness event with founder Dr. April Warren-Grice on Thursday, January 25, and note a number of other ways to get involved and educate yourself.

Thank you for your continued presence and dedication to equity, access and wellness. Be well. #BeTheWork.
