I’ve spent the past year thinking a lot about “wellth” — the idea that success is found in a lifestyle devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. (I even wrote a book about it.) In this new series, we’re celebrating visionaries who embody what it means to be wellthy. 

Rebecca Soni is a former Olympic swimmer who has SIX Olympic medals—three gold and three bronze! We met Rebecca through our dear friend Caroline Burckle, as they're collaborating to mentor young athletes through their RISE Athletes collaboration!
