Dr. Manuela Powell

Dr. Manuela Powell is a life coach for women who are ready to start living the most outrageously real years of their lives. After finally getting the memo that she was queer at the tender age of 47, she realized most women could use some help to come out of whichever BS closet they've been stuck in forever, so she took upon herself to be their soul fluffer. 
For almost 20 years, Manuela was a breast cancer surgeon, but after having her second child she decided she wanted to free herself from endless work hours, toxic work environments, and unflattering scrubs. She put away her scalpel to, instead, dissect women’s minds and help them excise the “shoulds”, "musts",  and “not-good-enoughs” from their brains forever, so they can be stop people-pleasing and learn to fully trust themselves, to the horror of the patriarchy police. 
A native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, after living in NYC, Washington, DC, and Hawai'i, she currently calls Austin, Texas her home, as a single mama to her 2 sons. She dances every day, curses like a sailor who stubbed his toe, and doesn't give a single crap to people who think she should behave her age.
