Her Fight Song
At the peak of her career, life was spiraling out of control for Laurie A. Watkins, the Florida policy director for former President Barack Obama. Barely keeping her head above water with 14-hour workdays punctuated with four hours of sleep—not to mention chain-smoking and a toxic diet—Watkins was destined for destruction. Then she decided to make a change.
In her debut book, Go From Stressed to Strong: Health and Fitness Advice From High Achievers (Skyhorse Publishing), Watkins chronicles the lifestyle improvements she made that turned her life around. Amid her self-help book’s tour, the 36-year-old Fort Lauderdale native shares her tribulations, triumphs and favorite recipes in an exclusive interview with Venice in hopes of inspiring others to break the cycle of an unhealthy lifestyle.
