157. What To Do When You Don’t Feel Like a Human with the author of “Blue Sky Morning” and “The Too Tall Giraffe” Christine Maier

Author Christian Maier is on a mission to help people gain clarity on how to turn their obstacles into opportunities and understand their beauty, purpose, and power.


She does this through the power of guiding people to clarify and tell their personal story transforming perceived weaknesses into strengths.

In Episode 157 of The Beyond Adversity Podcast Christine talks to Dr. Brad Miller about her own story of overcoming adversity to achieve success as an author and public speaker.

Christine was born with a cleft lip and palate and had over 25 surgeries; her first at four months old. Christine not only looked different growing up, but she also struggled with her speech, and too often, missed school for surgeries and treatments. A learning disability added to her challenges and her small size made her a last-round pick in the elementary school kickball draft.

Tired of hearing stories about what people can’t achieve, Christine is now passionate about guiding you through changing your thinking and turning obstacles into opportunities.

With twenty years of experience in the NYPD Christine has seen some of the best and worst of life and achieved the following milestones:

  • Patrol in Manhattan
  • 9/11 rescue worker
  • Instructor at the Police Academy
  • Recipient of the Eliot H. Lumbard Scholarship
  • Promoted to Sergeant in 2007
  • Member of the planning team and speaker at the National
Homeland Security Conference
  • Manager of 35 amazing individuals coordinating emergency

Christine earned her Bachelor’s Degree from the Pennsylvania State University and her Master’s Degree from the University at Albany.

She enjoys exploring her passion for travel, history, photography, reading, and creating community.

Christine has turned to write fiction, speaking, and coaching to respond to the question found posted in social media “why people sometimes do not feel human.”

Her book “Blue Sky Morning” addresses the life of a woman whose idyllic life was suddenly devastated by an automobile crash and her road to recovery. Her children’s book “The Too Tall Giraffe” helps children to discover that their strength resides in their differences.

Christine has a flair for finding adventure and the ability to ignore those who tell her how to live life, Christine is living a life without limits. You might find her at a movie premiere, cage diving in South Africa, visiting the Great Pyramids in Egypt, or climbing volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands.

She indeed is driven To Turn Obstacles Into Opportunities!

Dr. Brad Miller’s interview with Christine Maire on Episode 157 of The Beyond Adversity Podcast is a must-listen for the person looking for practical tools and a story guide to help you tell your personal transformational story.
