Leah Purcell’s New Podcast Is About Your Body

LEAH PURCIFER: “What does it mean to be in love?

To be in a relationship?

To have children?

To get married?

To not get married?”

When I first started my career as a nurse, I did it to help people, to help patients.

I was just trying to help them and to make a difference.

But I was so focused on my job.

So when I started working as a podiatrist, I was like, “OK, I can do this.”

And then I became a mother of three, and I’ve been a mom of three for 10 years.

It’s been a crazy ride.

And I love it.

I love my job, I love what I’m doing.

I’m excited to see what the next chapter is.

I have to give my all.

It takes me forever to do anything.

And then when I’m done, I’m going to retire.

And when I get older, I will be really proud of what I’ve done.

[Laughter.]

That’s my motto.

That’s who I am.

And the next thing you know, I’ll be back as a parent.

So that’s what it’s about.

And, yeah, my philosophy is that if you have a passion, you just do it.

It’ll happen.

It will happen.

I’ve just never been in a situation where I’ve felt like I didn’t need to do it, that I needed to take care of my body and my family.

And if you’re in a position where you need to take action and do something, do it!

I just love being a parent and being a nurse and helping people.

And that’s my whole thing.

And so that’s the whole reason I’m here.

You know, we’ve got to be on the lookout for a new generation.

I think that’s a huge opportunity.

[Applause.]

And I’m not going to stop there.

I just want to continue to be involved with what’s happening in the world.

I want to help other people and give back.

I don’t think it’s just about me anymore.

I can’t stop, I don�t think I can stop.

[Long pause.]

I want people to take a look at me.

I hope people see me as a different person.

And hopefully we can all take a little step forward.

[Audience cheers.]

So thank you. I know we�re all just getting started. And there�s lots more to come.

I�ve got a lot more to say about a lot of topics, but first of all, I�m just happy to have you on my show.

And you can watch it on my website.

I look forward to having you with me.

[Inaudible.]

It�s going to be fun.

And just one last thing.

My sister, my daughter, and my husband are moving to Washington, D.C. We�re moving here from Chicago.

I live with them and they�re going to live with me in New York City.

They�re my friends.

They love me.

So thank, thank you, and thanks for being with us.

[Proudly] Thank you.

The patient, who was conscious and speaking, was transferred to the hospital’s emergency department, where he was given oxygen and kept breathing for several minutes, according to a statement from the Ohio Department, which oversees the hospital.
