Speaker: Ellen Wood
Topic: Less Stress: The Simplest Secret for a Happy Life
Ellen Wood is a humorous inspirational speaker, columnist and award-winning author. As upbeat and vivacious as Ms. Wood is, it hasn’t always been an easy road for her. Five years after her mother died of Alzheimer’s, Ellen started experiencing progressive mental decline similar to the early stages of Alzheimer’s (she has the gene, APO-e4). That, plus a diagnosis of breast cancer and other serious knocks and bruises, provided the ‘wake up call’ to change her life. In 2004 she developed a program of mind/body/spirit techniques which she continues practicing to this day. A quirk in fate changed her focus from growing younger to living happy.
