This spark in our lives episode guest is Shauna Nuckles. Shauna is a public relations industry leader and Founder. Shauna spent her career rising through the PR agency ranks. She was determined to move to the top of an industry she loved and put in the hours and dedication to do so. At the point where it looked like she’d “made it,” the toll that job-related stress took on her health told a different story. Her doctor told her that she had 6 months to keep working like she was now or her body would force her to stop.
Through this process, she realized she wasn’t alone in feeling overwhelming stress and heard stories from others who shared their anxiety, stressed-induced hospital visits, and panic attacks.
Her mission suddenly became clear. In 2019 she founded Advocation, which is now paving the way for industry change by working with PR agencies to reduce stress without sacrificing results.
