This is Not What I Ordered: a podcast on full-hearted living with chronic illness + health challenges

Mar 19, 2018

Leo Newman is a licensed professional health counselor living in Travelers Rest, South Carolina with his wife and son. He's worked in the mental health field for a decade and currently splits his time between private practice and the local community health center. His primary focus is helping individuals and their loved ones learn to live beyond the challenges of their chronic health concerns.

Leo began his own journey with chronic health issues in 2005 after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease, and later with ankylosing spondylitis and end-stage renal disease. He's learned that peace and contentment can be found even in the most trying circumstances, and considers his deep connection to his support community to be one of the greatest gifts he's gained from his experience with chronic illness. Leo counts it a privilege to be part of others' communities as they navigate their health challenges.
