Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life (PMPL) is a non-profit organization very near and dear to my heart. Started in 2012 by Barb Schmidt, who just so happens to be my mom, PMPL serves to inspire everyone to lead a more peaceful and meaningful life. Whether it’s through daily inspirational posts or amazing retreats, we hope to spread our motto that outer peace begins with inner peace. I have served as Creative Director and Editor-in-Chief as well as a member of the board, and have found so much fulfillment from working with such a wonderful organization.
