Episode #98

ft. Kelli Tennant

In this episode Jordan chats with her dear friend and mega inspiration (and a new podcaster herself), Kelli Tennant! Kelli is also a longtime survivor of chronic Epstein-Barr Virus, and has dealt with years of misdiagnoses and her illness getting in the way of her life time and again. Because of all she has been through, she’s one of the people that Jordan has been able to call at any time, no matter how sick she is herself, for support and compassion. On her new podcast  The Platform, Kelli is offering that same support and love to all of her listeners – plus a whole lot of awesome stories from other inspiring women – so that we can all learn how to navigate perfectionism, health, criticism, success, and growth.


Kelli and Jordan chat about Kelli’s brave decision to leave her career in sports broadcasting to put her health first, what it was like to be struggling with an illness for years before finding the correct diagnosis, the relief of finding a community that can offer support and love, dating someone when you have a chronic illness, and how Ayurveda and functional medicine have helped Kelli heal in her journey.
