Finding Happiness in Unexpected Places with Carolyn Spector

On today’s episode, I welcome Carolyn Spector, the President and Chief Operating Officer of JUHI LLC, a company which offers healthcare services with a specialization in Eastern medicine. Carolyn shares with listeners her career journey and how her path has taken her from criminal law, to work with a variety of nonprofits, to her current position. Carolyn also shares her experiences with tragedy, offering listeners encouraging words for how to persevere through even the most difficult of times. 

CAROLYN explains that as she began to develop more and more empathy for the victims of domestic violence crimes, she grew more passionate about finding ways to make a difference in the lives of others

Carolyn begins our conversation today by talking about her background in criminal law and how she was instrumental in creating one of the first ever sexual assault and sexual violence units back in the 80’s. She explains that as she began to develop more and more empathy for the victims of domestic violence crimes, she grew more passionate about finding ways to make a difference in the lives of others. 

In 2012, CAROLYN was hired as a director at the National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction, which is a nonprofit that has since become known as myFace. 

Because of Carolyn’s passion, she eventually was led to New York, where she began work with Safe Horizon, which continues to serve as the nation’s leading victim assistance organization. From her experience working with Safe Horizon, Carolyn then went on to develop her own nonprofit: Walk to End Domestic Violence. While her work with this project only lasted a couple years due to the impact 9/11 had on New York, it was not the last of Carolyn’s involvement with nonprofits. After moving to Long Island, she then became the executive director for Mission Restore, a nonprofit whose goal was to train surgeons in foreign war-torn countries to be proficient in reconstructive surgery. In 2012, she was then hired as a director at the National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction, which is a nonprofit that has since become known as myFace. 

in 2013 her husband was diagnosed with brain cancer, and it became necessary for her to find a way to support her family while staying home and serving as his caretaker.

While Carolyn enjoyed her work at myFace, she then shares with listeners that unfortunately in 2013 her husband was diagnosed with brain cancer, and it became necessary for her to find a way to support her family while staying home and serving as his caretaker. In order to do so, she began her own consulting business. Carolyn then shares that soon after her husband passed away, she unexpectedly lost her mother and felt herself hit bottom. She describes the experience as being in hell and opens up about how she had no idea how to escape it. Eventually, this is what led her to Juhi Singh, who helped to heal her and whose relationship eventually led to her current position at JUHI LLC. 

Carolyn offers listeners advice on how to push through difficult times even when things seem darkest

Pulling from her personal experiences with tragedy, Carolyn offers listeners advice on how to push through difficult times even when things seem darkest.
