About Us

Metamorphosis happens when you are faced with a life threatening illness. With no factors for cancer, I made a commitment to help others along their recovery journey, as well to help those who want to live healthy lives. 

I am a  former health professional who after breast cancer decided that Health  & Wellness are integral to living a full life. I realized how  important it is to share information and learn from innovators, leaders,  scientists, nutritionists, artists, designers and physicians on how to  live healthier lives . I am the founder of Truth About Healthy Lives  Conference.

Carol is the founder of  EmpowerT  www.drinkempower.com
Carol is also a humanitarian who established the first girls library in Afghanistan with FemAid, artist & activist.
