Getting My Bounce Back

Book provided for review/feature consideration

Carolee Belkin Walker is a wellness blogger, podcaster, and freelance journalist whose work appears in the Washington Post, Women’s Running, the Chicago Tribune, the Toronto Sun, the Huffington Post, Thrive Global, the Baltimore Sun, the Tyler Morning Telegraph, and others. She was a featured blogger for the Daily Awesome at GovLoop, and her articles on U.S. life and culture have been translated into multiple languages and published around the world. Her former trainer, Reuel Tizabi, the author of two chapters in Getting My Bounce Back, is a certified personal trainer and a doctor of physical therapy student at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. 

While most people know Walker for her for her fitness and wellness writing, a fascinating and little known detail about Walker is that she is a career professional at the U.S. Department of State. She serves assignments as a public affairs specialist and a public diplomacy writer and editor and as a consular officer specializing in assisting U.S. citizens overseas and crisis management. Over the years, Carolee’s worked around the clock on the Department’s task forces, including during the Haiti earthquake and the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Getting My Bounce Back is an inspirational story about Walker digging deep inside, discovering who she is, and seeing how far she can push herself to be strong, fit, healthy, and most importantly, resilient. Her writing is full of humorous situations as she decides to be an active participant in life and not take setbacks, or herself, too seriously.

Until next time...
