She was a guest early on in our podcast to discuss the launch of her platform, and now. over a year later, is BACK to discuss her advocacy efforts and update us about her caregiving journey during the Covid-19 pandemic.

So who is Rebecca Minna as a woman, and what is her story behind her brand? Learn about her travels with her quadriplegic husband Damien, and how living in Indonesia for 3 years changed their lives forever. Learn about her transition to full time caregiver during the pandemic, and the strains of that new role for her husband – and how it changed her outlook on mental and emotional health as well as the dynamic of her relationship.
