Today’s guest is Jeannine Coulter – co-host of the popular recovery podcast, “Chasing Heroine.” Jeannine has an incredible story of recovery and has nearly 8 years of sobriety. Like many, this seemed like an impossible accomplishment in the previous years. Jeannines life started off great and was raised in a Christian home with loving parents. But, things changed drastically for her when her parents divorced unexpectedly and it completely wrecked her soul. The years that followed would be filled with debauchery, addiction, legal trouble and more. She even spent some of her final days of mayhem living in an actual doghouse. Today, she comes on the podcast to share her story of how she went from her darkest moments to finding sobriety, love and buying the fitness studio that helped save her life. We dive deep into her story from start to finish and so much more!
