EPISODE 5 - Soaring Despite the Odds

Here’s to strong women.
May we know them,
May we be them,
May we raise them.

In celebration of women’s month, we feature Christine Lopez, professional boxer, coach, podcaster, mother and grandmother.  Christine’s story is laced with lessons on determination, fierce courage, and the will to be more. How does she go from being a teen mother who suffered emotional, physical and verbal abusive repeatedly to becoming one of the coaches for Team USA’s Olympians?

In this episode, Christine shares how her lowest moments helped shape her into the person she has become today.  In her own words, ‘I want to be who the mentor and surrogate mother I didn’t have to others.’  She also teaches profound lessons on love, acceptance and mutual respect. What’s more she shares how the major boxing attributes, such as discipline and patience can be transferred into the boardroom.
