Full of grit and grace, Justine Brooks Froelker, uses her passion, the occasional curse word (when appropriate, of course), and humor to vulnerably share her truth to light up the world. Justine is an advocate for speaking shame and learning to thrive after life doesn’t turn out how you hoped, dreamed, and planned. Her spirit helps others to feel seen and empowered to change their own lives, no matter how life has turned out – to ultimately do the work of happy.
Justine is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) practicing in St. Louis, Missouri. She is the author of her best-selling books Ever Upward and The Mother of Second Chances [www.everupward.org]. She is also a Senior Ruby ambassador with Plexus Worldwide. During the Summer/Fall of 2017 she is on her Rising Ever Upward tour offering her workshops and intensives in eight cities across the country [www.daringinstl.com].
Justine lives in Saint Louis with her husband Chad and their three dogs. She enjoys her childfull life by spending time with friends and family, practicing creative self-care, laughing (sometimes at herself) and building butterfly gardens on her acre of land, which has made her an accidental butterfly farmer.
