Dr. Julia Bowlin Speaks before local Greenville BPW

The Public Relations Committee of the Greenville Business and Professional Women’s Club (BPW) hosted the February 13, 2014 meeting at the Brethren Retirement Community. The committee consisted of Mary Catherine Wilson, Norma Fae Knick, Rebecca Zeedyk and Susan Fowble.

Committee Chair Susan Fowble introduced Dr. Julia Bowlin as the speaker for the evening. Dr. Bowlin is a family physician and author of the book “To ME I Thee Wed: Love Honor and Cherish Yourself Forever After’ and the soon to be released book ‘Broken Bones/Soaring Soul’. Bowlin spoke on our inner self, conversations going on ‘in our head’, our emotions, and how important core values are. Dr. Bowlin’s struggle with depression, eating disorders, and self-harming behaviors as an adolescent and young adult has afforded her personal insight into what it is like to have a poor view of one’s inner self. She knows how it feels to be ‘divorced’ from one’s best self. Because of her past emotional struggles, her Bachelor of Arts degree in Socio-Anthropology, and her Doctorate of Medicine degree, she has an intimate as well as professional understanding of how personal, social, and cultural influences can impact how we think, feel and do. She is married with two children and presently practices medicine and resides in Greenville, OH.

The Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club is the leading advocate for working women achieving equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The local Club meets once a month to present programs to provide members with professional development programs, networking, participation in grassroots activism, and opportunities to support scholarships for the young women of Darke County.
