Amanda Rex was born in Seoul, South Korea. Raised in a small town in the American Southwest, at the age of twenty she developed an anxiety disorder, which began a process of transformation and healing that changed her life. Eventually she moved to New York City to pursue a career in finance. After working in midtown Manhattan for several years and having healed her anxiety disorder, she made the decision to leave the finance world and became the founder of True Freedom, which provides solutions for anxiety sufferers. She still makes her home in New York City, where she enjoys coaching others through their anxieties so they can live more satisfying lives.
In addition to her blog, she has written True Freedom: How to Heal Your Anxiety and True Freedom: A Beginner's Meditation Guide to an Easier Life, currently available on Amazon.
