Change your life. Realize your dreams. Rise to your greatest self.

Author and speaker, Jean Ellen Whatley gets people where they live. With stunning visuals from her 9,000-mile road trip with her dog Libby, that inspired the popular memoir Off the Leash, Whatley shares life lessons from the road that offer hope and healing.
