EP 41: Breaking the Cycle of Domestic Violence with Susan Omilian, JD

Susan Omilian, JD is an attorney, award-winning author, motivational speaker and recognized national expert who has advocated to end violence against women for the past forty years.

In the 1970s, she founded a rape crisis center and represented battered women in divorce proceedings in the early 1980s. She litigated sex discrimination cases including helping to articulate the legal concept that made sexual harassment illegal in the 1990s. With the death of her nineteen-year-old niece Maggie, who was shot and killed in October 1999 by her ex-boyfriend, Susan’s work became more personal and immediate.

Today, Susan is the originator and facilitator of My Avenging Angel Workshops based on the idea that “living well is the best revenge” that have helped hundreds of women who have been abused to take the journey from victim to survivor to thriver.

Co-hosts Deb Timmerman and Barb Fletcher are certified HeartMath® Trainers, and certified stress educators, who are skilled at helping people discover the power of living from the heart.
