About the Author
Brandi Sellerz-Jackson is a storyteller, birth and postpartum doula, and the creator of Not So Private Parts. Initially created as a women's lifestyle blog, Not So Private Parts has evolved into a resource removing the shame and stigma surrounding women's issues. Sellerz-Jackson is the co-founder of Moms in Color, a Black mom collective centered around celebrating diversity within the motherhood space. She is also the senior manager of social media for Ergobaby, a leading brand in babywearing and attachment parenting. Brandi Sellerz-Jackson lives with her husband, Jon; their three boys, Jax, Jedi, and Jupiter; and their labradoodle, Chaka, in Pasadena, California.
"This book is a beacon of resilience. Brandi Sellerz-Jackson offers vital and tender insights for navigating life's challenges with grace and strength. . . . A must-read for anyone committed to growth."--Erica Chidi Cohen, author of Nurture

"Sellerz-Jackson's book is more of an invitation than homework. She encourages us to embrace the darkness as well as the light. Both can be our companion. She is the ideal guide to usher you across the threshold of a new kind of self-discovery. Her mission is for people to stop going through the motions and to finally start savoring their lives."--Lena Waithe, Emmy award-winning screenwriter, actress, and producer

"An honest, kind, and powerful book to get one's life back on track . . . Sellerz-Jackson reminds us that thriving is not something that we 'achieve' after we do the work. Rather it is something we can experience during all seasons of life, no matter where we are on our healing journey."--Angela Rye, award-winning host, commentator, and CEO of IMPACT Strategies

"For those of us who need watering, for anyone who is still undone, On Thriving will doula, support, nourish, and grow even the most fragile of us. By providing easy tools, probing questions, and the clarity of a wise-woman, Brandi Sellerz-Jackson elevates us to a place where we are belly-full and thriving. I devoured it in one sitting! On Thriving is now my blueprint for rebirth."--Jodie Patterson, author of The Bold World

"On Thriving offers guidance for flourishing in relationships and with one's self. . . . Sellerz-Jackson uses a conversational, direct tone and tremendous empathy to guide all readers to live as the best versions of themselves."--BookPage
