The woman behind Switch4Good is a force of compassion who has lifted herself out of pain, into greatness, and is now working in pursuit of a kinder world. 

Dotsie Bausch is an Olympic medalist, two-time Pan American Champion, world record holder, mentor, renowned speaker, and founder of the Switch4Good non-profit. 

In this very special episode, she steps to the other side of the microphone to be interviewed by her co-host and friend, Alexandra Paul. 

Dotsie shares her incredible journey from the rock bottom of her struggle with anorexia to the Olympic podium as a plant-powered athlete. 

You’ll hear the inspiration behind Switch4Good’s work, what convinced Dotsie to make the change herself, the amazing results she saw in her performance, and the aftermath of her groundbreaking anti-dairy commercial

She also explains how her therapist, KRS Eckstrom, finally made her feel heard as a young woman and the principles of KRS’s “blue dot method” that Dotsie still applies in her life today. 

Dotsie’s story is one of healing yourself and, in turn, working to heal the world. Don’t miss it.
