JoAnna Ferrari lived male for 53 years. She was successful in business and happily married with 3 children for 23 years before finally making the difficult decision and commitment to transitioning her gender from male to female. Her announcement sent a shockwave through her entire world that caused her to lose everything; family support, friends, career and nearly, her life. ‘JJ’ as she prefers to be called, had the kind of professional and personal life people dream of but the dream ended and the nightmare began when she openly told the world about starting her gender transition. Today JJis happy in life and has again become a well-respected business coach, transition/performance consultant, requested keynote speaker and author. As you might imagine, this was interesting! Enjoy.
