Lisa King has enjoyed a career in health and wellness now for 30 years. Lisa knew that she wanted to be a pharmacist and was strongly encouraged by her family to choose this career path. She was very fortunate to find her life's purpose at a very young age. She graduated from the University of Arizona and delved into pharmacy. At a time, when people were not as aware of their health, Lisa began speaking publicly sharing information on how to effectively manage medications. She has always been a firm believer in taking charge of not only your own health but taking charge of your own destiny. Lisa was rewarded for her efforts outside of the pharmacy by becoming The Distinguished Young Pharmacist of the Year for the state of Arizona within a few years of graduating. As much as Lisa has enjoyed pharmacy, she also completely loves being with her family. She married her husband and high school sweetheart Jeff while she was still in pharmacy school. Shortly afterwards, Lisa became a mom with the birth of her first son, Chad. At this time Lisa balanced being a working mom with times at home with her son. Soon afterwards, a second son, Adam, followed. Lisa thoroughly enjoyed her time as a mom with both of her boys very active in sports and both avid baseball players. As her older boys were heading towards high school, Lisa had another son, Daniel. At this time, Lisa chose to stay home with her children and leave the pharmacy world behind for a bit of time. Lisa fully immersed herself into her new role as a stay at home mom with her boys. She baked, volunteered at their school and her church and watched their games at the baseball field. During this time period, the downturn of 2008 occurred. Lisa's family was hit extremely hard, as were many other Americans. The real estate market crash was the catalyst for change in not only Lisa's lifestyle, but also her mindset. At this time, with her oldest going off to college, and her youngest starting preschool, Lisa knew that she could contribute financially to her family by heading back to the pharmacy. This was a difficult time for Lisa, as she missed being away from her children and she went back to work full time. However; she knew that being a pharmacist had always been her calling in life and she wanted to make the most out of her time in the pharmacy while she was there during the day. As Lisa's life changed, she engaged in self-development. She began purchasing and reading books to lift her spirits and push through this challenging period in her life. These books could be found everywhere with Lisa, and she honestly knew they were the reason she was able to cope with her current situation. At this time, Lisa learned that happiness and the peace and fulfillment she was seeking had to come from within. She realized that she had to change her mindset or nothing would change. She began working on negative thought patterns and word choices that she was using throughout the day. This is when she came up with the mantra "turn it around." These three simple words were a reminder to keep only the thoughts that made her stronger. These words, were given to her by a stranger that to this day has never known how much these 3 words changed Lisa's life. As a 35 year old mother of three, Lauren was facing a breast cancer diagnosis and cancer surgery all while her youngest was just turning one year old. During this time, she learned that she had to make a conscious choice to push through her pain. She began to realize that a positive mindset was her best choice to get her through her recovery. This was not always easy and the theory of taking one day at a time quite literally had to be broken down to taking one hour at a time. Lauren founded the Happily Ever After League (HEAL) in 2004, just six months after her breast cancer diagnosis. HEAL helps to support moms and their families through cancer recovery. Lauren began to realize it was her cancer diagnosis that brought her to her life's work. She became a certified life coach and coaches the moms she works with through HEAL to live their lives to the fullest, even during a difficult time. She also teaches them to learn to become the best version of themselves despite their cancer diagnosis. Together, sisters, Lisa and Lauren have over forty-five years in health and healing. They have learned that in life even and adverse situation can bring about positive changes. They both live their lives by this example and came together to collaborate on Tiny Life Changes- A Guide to Achieving Your Goals and Dreams One Step and One Day at a Time. Lauren Daniels is a life coach, author and the founder of a non-profit organization. Her most important role in life, however, is being a wife and mother. She was born in Staten Island, New York and moved with her parents and sister Lisa to Scottsdale, Arizona when she was 10 years old. Lauren was very social in nature and made friends easily at her new school. She quickly got involved at school and really enjoyed spending time with her new friends. Their family really did settle in to their new community very nicely. Growing up, Lauren and her sister Lisa were quite different. Lisa knew from a very young age that she wanted to become a Pharmacist. Lauren felt very strongly there was something that she too was meant to do but as she was finishing high school and starting college she could not really identify with what her life's purpose was. So at the young age of 18, Lauren went off to school at Arizona State University and chose a general studies degree in public programs. One thing that Lauren was certain of just one year into her college experience was that she was falling in love with her then friend, Sean. Lauren and Sean started dating the summer between Freshmen and Sophomore year of college and they never turned back. They were engaged in August before their Senior year and married in November of 1990. Almost immediately after Lauren and Sean were married, Sean's job took them to Palm Springs, California. This was a difficult time for Lauren because she had to leave her parents, sister and all of her friends in Arizona. Soon after arriving in California, Lauren became pregnant with their oldest daughter Kayli. With a stroke of luck, Lauren and Sean were transferred back to Arizona after a year and a half. Once back in Arizona their family grew again, with the birth of their son Sam. Lauren and Sean were very plugged in to their community where they volunteered in many capacities. Sean coached t-ball and Lauren became PTO President at the children's school. Lauren met some amazing women during this time of her life and still often refers to them as her village. Lauren and Sean had been trying to have a third child for awhile and had some struggles during this time in growing their family. Finally, in 2002 their baby Grace completed their family. They moved to a larger home to accommodate their family of five. It was an exciting and joyful time and life was going just as they had dreamed of.
