In today’s fast-paced, multi-tasking society it is easy to become overwhelmed. In stressful situations, the body goes into high gear to prepare for the “fight or flight” response, and modern living often requires people to address highly stressful situations on a daily basis. Dr. Corppetts aims to help people cope with these situations in a healthier and more successful way.

Dr. Corppetts contends that women are more susceptible to stress due to the fact that they must often maintain the traditional role of caretaker while building a professional career. “It is easy to put one’s self on the back burner without realizing you will eventually burn out,” commented Dr. Corppetts, who advocates that taking care of oneself both physically and emotionally should become a priority.

According to, cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women. The Women at Heart Forum and Exhibition provides awareness and education about women and cardiovascular disease. According to Dr. Corppetts, “Women need to be empowered and take charge of their well-being, which includes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of their lives.”

The release of her new book, Take Charge for Major Success: A Guide to Living Your Best Life, is an example of the empowerment involved in loving oneself enough to make personal goals a priority. “If you are tired of just getting by or living someone else’s life, stop the madness and begin to do what is healthy, physically and emotionally, for yourself,” stated Dr. Corppetts.

Having worked in healthcare for over twenty years in the behavioral science field, Dr. Corppetts acknowledges that hereditary and environmental factors can take a toll on one’s health when proper care is not taken.
