Hi! My name is Rosie Mankes. My journey in life has been full, abundant, beautiful, heartbreaking and disappointing, and then Joyful once again!
I had a thriving career in ad sales and partnership marketing for some of the largest publishing houses and non-profit companies. I have a loving husband and two beautiful sons. To the outside world, life was “great” when people peered into my window. However, I had some major adversity along the way that I wasn’t possibly prepared for that no one could predict.
In 2008 at the age of 44, I was diagnosed with an early stage lung cancer and had 10% of my right lung removed. In 2015 at the age of 52, I was diagnosed with an early stage breast cancer, tested positive for the breast cancer gene and had a double mastectomy along with reconstructive surgery. During the same year, my mom’s dementia had progressed to the point that we needed to admit her into an Assisted Living Facility - she went in kicking and screaming! Just when things started to settle down during that year, my 58-year-old healthy brother died in a horrific accident. As you might expect, when so much is heaped on one person, I started to live my life in fear, which turned into paralyzing anxiety, making me incredibly frightened as to what might happen next.
After much self-examination, therapy, reading multiple self-help books and practicing mindfulness and meditation on a daily basis, I decided to become a Life Coach. Since both of my cancers were found in the early stages and didn’t require treatment, I wholeheartedly feel that my higher power has allowed me to find these cancers early, to remain here to help clients create a vision for themselves by letting go of what no longer serves them, discrediting limiting beliefs so that they can embrace their authentic selves and create their own exciting, unique path.
