Brown is a sought-after presenter, panelist, and trainer with over two decades of experience in the legal and leadership arenas. From a young age, growing up in a marginalized community, she saw first-hand the challenges and obstacles that those with similar backgrounds encountered in society. She came to the realization that in order to change the outcome, one had to have a place and a voice at the table.Upon graduating from law school, Judge Brown served as a public defender fighting for all those who did not traditionally have a voice—the low income, the immigrant, those suffering from mental health challenges, anyone who did not have access to their constitutional right of appropriate representation. She argued several high-profile cases that were noted in the media and written about in local and regional publications. In 2011, California Governor Jerry Brown appointed Shelyna V. Brown to the bench in Santa Clara County.Judge Brown has served on several boards and has been recognized for her excellence in advocacy and praised for her contributions to the community. She was awarded numerous honors and accolades, including Excellence in Advocacy from the 100 Black Women of Silicon Valley, the Ivy Rose Foundation named her the first recipient of the Distinguished Women of Silicon Valley Awards, and the Silicon Valley Business Journal listed her as one of the 100 Women of Influence. Judge Brown was honored by the Silicon Valley NAACP with the Wester Sweet Award for Legal Activism, she is the most recent recipient of the Santa Clara Law School Social Justice and Human Rights Award, and she received a Congressional Commendation from Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren.From nonprofits to universities to global corporations including Stanford University, the Parent Project, and Gilead Sciences. Judge Brown uses her uncommon perspective as a superior court judge, certified mediator, entrepreneur, and master coach to inspire and equip individuals to meet and rise above all of life’s challenges.Judge Brown received her bachelor of arts from University of California, Davis and her juris doctorate from Santa Clara University, School of Law where she is a well-known figure and frequent speaker and guest lecturer.Judge Brown is dedicated community servant, advocate, and mentor. She welcomes and promotes opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds to visit her courtroom, to observe, ask questions, to learn about the legal profession, and to envision being a voice at the table. Lori Volkman, J.D.: https://drleaf.com/pages/advisory-board

Thank you both for this podcast! It is great to hear an honest and at the same time helpful testimony of Dominique, that puts in perspective the emotions most of us go through our everyday life. I love the tips on self care mind techniques that help us reconstruct our mindset. However, I was wondering if you have a podcast that explores on a deeper level the issue of Loneliness?

This whole keto thing is confusing me as far as healing the brain is concerned. I believe it is a good transition from a bad fat diet but is it really going to heal? If you consider heavy metal toxicity ... it oxidizes in fat ... good fat and bad fat. That concerns me from a detox point of view (I’m focused on autism). I’m glad he says there is a time limit to following this diet. Personally I think healing the gut is more than keto.

I rather take supplements from a reputable company, than toxic meds from big pharma. Thank you very much. Been taking supplements a while now and my blood work is quite fine.

1 Min 24 second is too long for her adverts at the beginning. 15 seconds is all other podcasts do which encourages me to listen. I love the content but don't like the exceptionally long intros.

out of the 4 personality types, I'm a classic Melancholy so I thought I was overthinking and overanalyzing due to my personality. I cant wait to see if I can make Dr. Leaf's advice control this better. I'm constantly having to apologize for text messages that I send after the fact and I think about what just took place or was said.

I struggle with overthinking especially when it comes to my family, I always feel like I have to defend myself

She has some very valid points in her criticisms but although her conclusions seem dressed as evidence based, she takes WAY too many intuitive leaps that seem driven by her worldview instead of science. Maybe tbere is room for this kind of show but it will be irritating if you prefer balanced less opinion driven info
