UNSTOPPABLE: Iraq War Vet Turns Obstacles into Opportunities & Victims to Victors
Female Marine Corps Intel Officer Reveals the Mindset Secrets to Catapult from “Survival to Thrival”…and Announces Book Launch
San Diego, CA – Saturday December 1st, 2012 – JUST ROLL WITH IT BOOTCAMP – Former Marine Corps Intel Officer and trauma survivor, Sarah Plummer, (aka: Semper Sarah) is leading a transformative and outrageously inspirational one-day boot camp, designed to equip participants with the tools to start living a happier, healthier, and more successful life that very day!
The Semper Sarah Mission is to inspire, instruct, and empower you to get “unstuck” after a traumatic event or difficult time in your life so that you can create a ridiculously happy, healthy, and successful life in school, business, and beyond that will end up being even more fulfilling and exciting than the life you had before that crappy event happened! The bootcamp is open to anyone who has experienced the effects of stress, trauma, and grief on the mind, body, and spirit. Americans are overworked, overstressed, and unhealthy; 70% of adults nation-wide have experienced some type of trauma; soldiers are returning from war or leaving the service and then committing suicide at rates higher than combat deaths; and a majority of our population is overmedicating for pain and depression and losing faith in their deeper purpose. “It is imperative to learn simple, healthy alternatives to improve our health, energy, and vitality,” said Sarah Plummer,” keynote speaker and founder of the Just Roll With it Bootcamp. “The goal of the bootcamp is to show participants that once someone regains their sense of intuition about their own health and happiness, they will be empowered to discover their path to true success.”
The idea for the bootcamp came to Sarah after returning from Iraq and battling the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and sexual trauma. She realized she could help others by sharing her road back to health. Participants will gain a greater understanding of how to make realistic yet unique changes that will reduce the stress, suffering, or unhappiness in their lives.
“There are so many resources for health beyond the typical medication, old-school therapy, or unhealthy and destructive outlets,” says Sarah. She emphasizes that you must be healthy in order to heal, and so the event is filled not only with inspiration but also with practical instruction to support attendees as they move forward in their lives. Nationally recognized speakers in the fields of leadership, overcoming adversity, and mindfulness therapies will join Sarah for this transformational event: Larry Broughton, award-winning serial entrepreneur, author, and former special forces operator; Matt Patterson, award-winning author and speaker, USAF veteran; Dan Stover, Tedx rockstar and integrated leadership coach; and Kate Hendricks, USMC veteran and expert in the science behind healing techniques such as yoga and meditation.
Event participants will have first access to Sarah’s new book, Just Roll with It: Stop Comparing, Competing, and Self-Defeating which will be released at the event. Kristine Carlson, co-author of the New York Times best-selling Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff series, says “this book will inspire you to personal greatness, challenge you to transform absolutely every area of your life, and dare you to love the life you live.”

Everyone’s looking for the perfect teacher, but although their teachings might be divine, teachers are all too human, and that’s something people find hard to accept. Don’t confuse the teacher with the lesson, the ritual with the ecstasy, the transmitter of the symbol with the symbol itself. Paulo Coelho
