Dr. Brittany Conners
I have a burning passion for people. Growing up in St. Louis, MO with a big, blended, loving family shaped me into the woman I am today. My spirit glows, love flows, & lifting others up is a must. My Mom instilled compassion in me early & my Dad reminded me I could do anything. Seeing examples of trust, patience, and generosity with others placed an optimistic lens over my eyes that forever changed me.
Optimistic Theory manifested when I was in my mid 20's. My bubbly, hopeful demeanor was abruptly met with the realness of the world. I was told my smile wouldn't last because "life would catch up with me" as if life was a scary monster. Don't get me wrong, life is hard. However, those not- so-well wishes on my life did not sit well in my heart. It made me very angry. Why would anyone wish that for someone? More importantly, my question became: have we accepted this as a truth for adults? I was frustrated with being constantly told adulthood ends inevitably with growing up to be grumpy. I had to do something.
