Quentin Vennie is a celebrated wellness expert, motivational speaker and author. He grew up in Baltimore under conditions defined by adversity, struggle and hopelessness. Quentin was raised by a single mother who fought tirelessly to give him a better life and on a path to something better.
Plagued with low self-esteem, and feelings of abandonment, Quentin was diagnosed with anxiety and depression at age fourteen. Years later he developed a prescription drug and alcohol addiction that drained him of everything, including his desire to live. After years of fighting a war of anxiety, depression and addiction, he set out on a journey to heal himself. With nothing more than faith and determination, he was able to successfully overcome his addictions, as well as develop a system to better manage his anxiety disorder. Quentin is living proof that during our weakest moments, we have the power and ability to unlock unimaginable strength.
