About the Episode

When former collegiate athlete and competitive skydiver, Sydney Williams, unexpectedly found herself on the receiving end of a Type 2 diabetes diagnosis, while grappling with unresolved trauma from a decades-old sexual assault, she set out on a mission: turn her pain into power. Two hikes across Catalina Island and 80 miles later, she founded Hiking My Feelings® to help others tap into the mind-body connection and healing power of nature that helped kick her self-limiting beliefs and disease into remission.

I'll be going deep with Sydney to discuss the challenges of leaving her cushy corporate marketing career working with Fortune 500 companies and emerging brands behind to follow her mission-driven dreams to inspire and empower others to summit their own personal mountains on their way to becoming Well Beings.

Over the years, Sydney has been featured on the SXSW stage, as well as in Health Magazine, Diabetic Living Magazine, Huffington Post, Psychology Today, US News & World Report, and numerous other publications.

Sydney is the author of Hiking My Feelings: Stepping Into the Healing Power of Nature and when COVID is not a thing, travels across the country giving talks, leading workshops and retreats, and hosting group hikes.
