Theresa Larson is a woman with many titles and one inspiring story.  She’s played college and professional softball, served as a US Marine, and is now a doctor of physical therapy in San Diego.  In her recent memoir, Warrior, Theresa bravely shares her story of being a platoon commander in Iraq and battling some inner demons.

We have a very raw and honest conversation about:

• The issues that come with being a perfectionist

• The challenges of being a female Marine officer

• How movement and exercise helps us overcome trauma

• The importance of owning and sharing our stories
