Turning Points: Sara Zambrelli

We’ve partnered with NowThis to present Turning Points, a collection of firsthand accounts from people about their experiences with burnout — including what their wake-up call moments were, advice they wish they had gotten before the scales tipped too far, and how they recalibrated their lives to find a version of success that does come with health and fulfillment. The four women featured in the first set of Turning Points videos talk about leaving behind the worlds of corporate America, fashion, PR and finance to pursue lives in which their well-being was not an afterthought.

Sara Zambrelli left behind the world of high fashion to pursue her dream of helping teenagers as a psychotherapist. What finally made her take the plunge? Shedding the expectations of those around her. Success for Sara now? “Being able to find a balance between having a career and feeding my soul.”

Watch Sara’s story below.
