In this week’s episode, Tammi and Sondra are excited to share a conversation with Jackie Mantey. Jackie is a Chicago-based copywriter, journalist, podcaster and artist. They talk about how making art saved her in early sobriety and how that practice culminated into an exhibit and companion book, titled “Gone, Country”, that debuted in September 2018. Jackie’s story is so relatable but extraordinary at the same time, they know you will be inspired. If you want to see Jackie’s past and current work, you can visit her at http://jackiemantey.com/ or catch her on Instagram @jackiemantey.
This week Jackie shares three items from her Unruffled Toolbox: (1) DBT Skills Training Manual by Marsha Lineham; (2) The BestSelf Co SELF Journal; and (3) The Recovering: Intoxication and Its Aftermath by Leslie Jamison.
