Description: The American Institute of Stress has reported that America is "on the verge of a stress-induced public health crisis." Stress-management advice, training, and products are abundant, yet statistics continue to worsen. There's a reason why stress-management techniques aren't working: It's risky not to be stressed because you'll be kicked out of the club! The Stress Club opens eyes to these pressures and teaches you how to disconnect from stress forever. This session, based upon Tami's research, is guaranteed to make you laugh AND forever change the way you think about stress!

Dr. Tami West has been helping people take their power back and live their own lives for over 15 years. Her passion stems from a lifelong battle with anxiety disorder that initiated her dedication to helping others. Her clients come from all walks of life. Danbury Federal Prison inmates (the setting of the Netflix Emmy-winning series Orange is the New Black, as well as the prison home for Martha Stewart and Real Housewife Teresa Garduci) found Tami to be genuine and real, with good practical messages and coping skills. Social Security Administration senior management called her a true professional and fantastic at what she does! Tami began her career with a Bachelor's degree in biology and spent the next ten years working in hospitals, physician's offices, and research labs. She changed careers in 1995, becoming a public school teacher, and in 2005 decided to pursue a career that would allow her to use personal experiences to help women find solutions to their challenges. Her undergraduate degrees in science and education, as well as her doctoral research in human development, uniquely equip her to address the human factor that underlies the success of women, both personally and professionally. Her publications include The Stress Club: Stop participating, take your power back, and start living your own life, A Woman's Guide to Personal Achievement and Professional Success, and Life Without the Monsters. She has spoken for groups in 48 states across the US, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. When she's not speaking or writing, you might find her with her husband at the beach, reading historical fiction, at Disneyland, or watching Big Bang Theory.
