In the late 1940s, The Broad's great-aunt Virginia took a trip to Europe, and was asked by the local newspaper to write letters home telling of her journey. She titled them Letters From A Broad, because she was clearly my spirit animal. The letters were published, but under a different title, because no one in Albany, NY had a sense of humor until at least 1950. Those letters have been the inspiration to take this journey in helping families transition into a new world, but with a wink and a sense of humor.
On this path, The Broad came upon her own fork in the road, and has chosen to take the path less taken, and discuss her discoveries through anxiety, depression(ish), and the stigma of helping yourself.
Erica Leathem (The Broad) is a Certified Lactation Counselor, a Postpartum Doula (DONA), a SafeKids Child Passenger Safety Technician (car seat installation guru), CPR/First Aid instructor, and a darn good cook when she tries. She has a BA from the University of Colorado in Political Science, and a MEd in Adult Education, which she will never use, but is listing because it makes her sound smart.
