Episode 050: “Living Centered in Service of Others”

Featuring Tuere Butler

“Life’s most urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” –  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today’s guest, Tuere Butler, is continually inspired by this question and has committed her life to the empowerment and service of others—first as the longest-serving member of Congressmen John Lewis’ team and now as the Director of Operations for Plywood People in Atlanta, GA. During today’s interview, Lindsey and Mickenzie sit down with Tuere to talk about her time with the Congressman, her journey of finding balance and self-care while serving others, and the importance of truly seeing people for who they are, instead of the position or titles they hold.
