This week on the SavvyCast, I am joined by mother-daughter duo Jane Burkhart and Lizzie Harbin. Listeners may remember Lizzie from her informative ask-the-doctor episodes on women’s health. In this episode, they share their experiences as survivors of domestic abuse. It was such a privilege to talk to these two women and hear their stories. Lizzie and Jane are gracious, resilient, and strong, and I know you will find their story to be just as moving as I did!
