“Change Your Thoughts, Change Your World”
Our 4th Annual Hanover Women’s Event was held Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at the Hanover Country Club.
Featured Speaker: Dr. Angela Lindenmuth Marick, author of “Beauty in the Brokenness” and Owner of Shatterbox Coaching
Dr. Angela earned degrees in nutrition and exercise science from Cornell University and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic as valedictorian of her class. For the past nine years, her successful chiropractic practice has stressed a holistic and vitalistic approach to health care lovingly applied through relaxation and rejuvenation.
In 2016, Dr. Angela’s world was shaken when she experienced the heart-crushing loss of her 40-year-old husband who was also father to their two young sons. His remarkable spirit and positive mindset throughout his illness inspired her to be fully present in every moment. As a result, she has found a new voice and dedicates herself to helping others achieve a mindset that leads to a life of fulfillment and happiness.
Dr. Angela’s recent career as a Life Coach focuses on professional women who are searching for life balance through accountability and inspired action. During her presentation, she shared a powerful mindset model to change your thoughts and change your world!
