Dr. Stephanie Brown on Black Women Post-Election, Creating Community, and Self-Care for All
Dr. Stephanie Brown is a family physician who has been practicing for over 20 years. Over the past few years, she decided to expand her wellness focus to include emotional, spiritual, and relational healing as well as physical. She became a life coach because of her desire to create a safe space for women to overcome anything that may be holding them back. In May of 2020 she launched S.O.A.R. (Sisters Overcoming and Rising). It is a platform that includes a radio show, a podcast, a virtual community, and more. The goal is simply to empower, educate and uplift women — especially Black women. In this featured interview, Dr. Stephanie Brown talks about creating S.O.A.R., the role Black women play on the U.S. political landscape, creating community, what it’s like on the COVID-19 front lines, and she shares guidance about much-needed healing and self-care to help us live our most joyful and empowered lives.
