Dr. Kathryn Pearson Peyton -030

This week’s success story is about a medical doctor who is specially trained as a breast imaging radiologist.   After years of watching patients receive mistaken breast cancer diagnosis that could have been avoided IF the patient had a full, side by side medical record of her mammograms, Dr. Kathryn Pearson Peyton created Mammosphere:  a cloud-based repository for breast scans.  Once a concert violinist, Kathryn thrived in medical school and was determined to do what she could in the fight against breast cancer.  Her great-grandmother, her grandmother, her mother, her aunts have all heard the words “you have breast cancer” and when Kathryn learned that she had an 85% lifetime risk of experiencing the disease herself, she had an elective bilateral mastectomy.  In this compelling interview, Dr. Peyton shares how she felt at the moment she raised her hand to take the Hypocratic Oath, her devotion to her family, and her passion for providing every woman with the tools she needs to take control of her medical records.   #storybehindhersuccess   #16LifeLessons

Marie Loconte -029

Marie was only 8 years old when she had her first premonition.  In her mind, she saw herself being hit by a car.  As she walked to school one morning, a car coming toward her swerved to the right, so she went left and instead of being hit head-on, Marie’s premonition saved her and she was merely grazed by the car.  A few years later, she started seeing images and shadows.  Soon, those images and shadows began communicating with her.  Marie began to understand that she had a gift she never asked for:  she was a psychic medium.  In this episode, Marie Loconte shares her life story, including where she believes we go when we die, what our loved ones want us to know, her experience with past lives, the truth about tarot cards, her firm belief that we all have untapped psychic abilities and the power of her faith.  #storybehindhersuccess   #16LifeLessons

Jen Maseda -027

In this week’s episode, we’re shining the spotlight on a passionate entrepreneur who has taken one of those “why didn’t I think of that” ideas and turned it into reality.  Meet Jen Maseda, creator of “She’s Local”, a multi-platform, global business that provides inspiration and support to women right in their own hometowns.  If you ask this wife and mother of two what drives her, she’ll tell you that she’s on a quest to provide women with everything they need to dream big and accomplish their goals.  With Masters Degrees from Harvard University and Florida Atlantic University in Public Health and Social Behavior, Jen used her energy, talents, connections, and business savvy to launch the sold-out MetroWest Conference for Women in 2017 and is also the host of a local award-winning cable access program called Woman2Woman Today.  We sat down to discuss where her passion to empower women comes from, her definition of success and what matters most to her.   #storybehindhersuccess  #16LifeLessons  @candyoterry
