The I NEEDED THAT website is live!


 How many times have you crushed a workout or had a good laugh, cry, or meaningful conversation with a friend and said: I NEEDED THAT.

You’re not alone, which is why I’m so excited to share with you the I NEEDED THAT podcast.

This podcast is a perfect and—prior to now—rare opportunity to open up, connect, and laugh with all of you on a deeper level.
