Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest
A friend who I stay connected with on Instagram suggested I connect with Jeroen. After speaking with him for a few minutes, it was easy to get a sense for his place and peace in the world. After rescheduling a tea, I asked Jeroen to come on the show to meet for the first time. I appreciated his calmness and centering pauses. I suspect there is much more to know about Jeroen and look forward to tea adventures with him. – Stephanie Michele
