Veteran Finding Healing in Her Campervan


This post contains affiliate links.

Angie is a veteran who was sent overseas in one of the first waves of the war in Iraq, where she was exposed to horrible things that left her struggling with PTSD and her overall mental health when she got home. Eventually, she tried weaning off of the many prescription drugs she was taking (as prescribed) to help with her trauma, but the withdrawal was challenging. Vanlife allowed her to get closer to nature, which ultimately helped her the most in her healing journey.

Her Winnebago Revel van includes a lift bed, which was the selling point of this model. That said, she’s done oodles of renovations to the rig to where it works best for her, including overhauling the kitchen and adding a deeper sink to make cooking easier. You’re going to love her inspiring story and epic van!

  • Eventually she discovered vanlife, which brought her back to nature, which has ultimately been her biggest healer!
  • She is now a holistic mental health coach, working full-time to help others find the same peace that she enjoys.

    Thank you Angie for your sacrifices for us. Best wishes in your healing and glad you have a pooch. Probably the best medication ever invented 🙂
