Jann And Shari Simmons

Shari Simmons is currently the Executive Director of Fire Mountain Treatment Center and is an Adjunct Professor at Colorado Christian University, where she teaches Crisis/Trauma, Psychopathology and Management/Administration. Shari and Jann speak across the country at women’s retreats, treatment facilities, high schools and church groups, reminding others that the path we choose leads us to the life we were destined to have. After devoting much of her adult life to raising her two daughters, Jann Simmons launched a successful 12-year career as an Executive Administrator in the banking industry. Jann is now retired and enjoying her life to the fullest. Jann began speaking at treatment facilities, followed by university classrooms upon her daughter’s urging. The overwhelming response she received when telling her story prompted the idea of writing this book. Sharing her journey through the book and during speaking engagements with Shari have brought her internal peace and hope for others.

What is the Which Way podcast?

In Which Way?…Mother and daughter tell parallel stories about trauma and its impact on the generations that follow. Jann Simmons’ story is a heart wrenching account of an orphaned child who suffered brutality at the hands of her mother, as well as many others. As an adult, Jann’s mind was closed to the horrors of her abuse, betrayal and abandonment until the day they all came flooding back to her conscious mind. That awareness began a 40-year transformation from a passive victim to resilient warrior. As a young teen, Shari struggled to make sense of her mother’s pain, but as a career mental-health therapist, she began to understand her mother’s journey and learn how trauma affects the brain. She offers strategies in this book for those suffering from past or present trauma or for those who love someone who is suffering. Both women tell their stories and drive home the fact that the choices we make can lead to self-hatred and resentment or to a life of courage, healing and beauty. Which Way? is an unforgettable story of love and transformation that will resonate with mothers, daughters, trauma survivors, those who love them and those who’ve made a career out of helping them heal.
