Coffee Fueled Stories with Michelle Schmer
By Michelle Unicorn
Welcome to my Virtual Coffee Spot(c). I'm your pocket DJ and this podcast is where storytelling and coffee hang out. As a super-survivor I have turned my trauma and grief into a powerful, creative force for good. And I learned, it's never too late to start a podcast—at 51. This show is where I can share my stories and connect with you. Thank you for listening and sharing this journey with me.
