    Episode 29: Making Home Happy on the Road (With Guest Kathy Davis)

    Today on Creating Your Happy Place, we are chatting with special guest Kathy Davis! Kathy traded the white picket fence for a life on the road, living in a fifth-wheel RV with her husband and 2 cats.  Listen to hear about her transition to a home-on-wheels, what obstacles she faced (and continues to face) in making this bold move, and what we can learn from her when making our own tiny kitchens work as hard as we need them to.

    Kathy Davis is a plant-based lifestyle coach and recipe developer, the CEO of VegInspired.com, and the author of three cookbooks: The 30-Minute Whole-Food Plant-Based Cookbook, The Super Easy Plant-Based Cookbook, and The Budget-Friendly, Plant-Based Diet Cookbook. She helps people successfully transition to a plant-based way of eating that supports a fast-paced lifestyle, without requiring hours in the kitchen or the added stress of “What am I going to eat?!”

    Episode 26: Home For Folks In A Wheelchair (With Guest Maegan Blau)

    Episode 26: Home For Folks In A Wheelchair (With Guest Maegan Blau)

    Today on Creating Your Happy Place, we are chatting with special guest Maegan Blau! Maegan Blau is an interior designer based in sunny Arizona.  In 2009 she incurred a C6-C8 spinal cord injury and has been a wheelchair user ever since. She is diagnosed with an incomplete C8 spinal cord injury which has obviously changed the way she lives in the blink of an eye. As a person with a disability, it seemed the majority of options to make homes accessible were straight-up ugly and very hospital-like. It got her thinking…we can do better than this! Listen to this episode to hear all about her incredible journey.

    Her interior design career started with a personal journey to renovate and adapt her first home to fit accessibility needs while having a high level of style. Combining her perspective of disability with her life-long passion for interior design fueled Maegan to find creative ways to make spaces beautifully accessible.  In 2018 she started Blue Copper Design to elevate the world of adaptive design.

Relatable and refreshing

Any home I have lived in has been my safe place so listening to this podcast has been refreshing. Rebecca is such a great host, and I look forward to listening to more.

Great Topics

Rebecca is a fresh breathe of air…she actually listens to her guests. Happy is such an abstract idea but each episode seems to reveal a real-life change that a person has accomplished in creating their happy place.
