You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch, your Host. Welcome to the show. Today I have an incredible show for you. I called my guest the “Challenge Ninja” when we started the conversation, but by the end of this I realized that she really is the “Wellness Ninja”. If you’ve ever dealt with challenges in your life, and my guess is that you have, then you have to listen to today’s episode and listen carefully. My guest is Kaley Zeitouni, Best Selling Author, Therapist, Coach, Speaker who turned her challenges into a successful coaching business through her resilience and determination. What were those challenges?
Kaley was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) at twelve years old and despite the serious diagnosis, she was determined to stay positive, overcome the disease, and get the most out of life. At age 14, Kaley founded her non-profit Youth Against MS (YAMS), Inc. and inspired thousands of adolescents across the country to live with gratitude and make the most of their lives. She also served as a patient advocate to other MS patients and their families.
After 18 years of living with the debilitating disease, Kaley committed herself to applying mind-body techniques to completely eliminate her symptoms. Today, she medically confirmed to be disease-free; something almost unheard of. Kaley took her personal experience of healing and developed a full coaching business, guiding others with chronic illness to experience relief from their symptoms using scientifically backed mind-body techniques.
Her resilience was tested again when Kaley’s fiance, David Crayk, died suddenly. Determined to begin to feel whole as quickly as possible, she knew she couldn’t wait for time, or try the all too common default of self-distraction. Kaley surrounded herself with coaches, mentors, and therapists to harness every tool possible to face her pain.
Kaley turned those tools along with her experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist into her own grief coaching program, and now guides others through the loss of a spouse or partner. We unpack so much in this episode. This one deserves to be heard twice or maybe even three times. Here we go, ladies, here’s the unbelievable Kaley Zeitouni.
