Episode Fifteen: Jillian Brown – PTSD and the Energy Within

To Jillian Brown, PTSD doesn’t stand for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, it stands for Perseverance, Trust, Strength, and Determination, because that’s what she found as she’s navigated through her personal journey with PTSD. 

Jillian has a unique understanding of PTSD. She left everything behind to leave an abusive relationship, and ended up homeless and lost. Seeking out professional help, Jillian was diagnosed with PTSD, but was given very little information and even fewer options.

Jillian has found strength, determination, and direction through connecting with nature and moving her body. In this episode of WOTW, we talk about the healing power of the wilderness and exercise, how a squirrel taught her the meaning of life, and the adventures that have shaped her into the incredible human she is today.
