Marti MacGibbon Delivers Life Skills Trainings to Inmates at Ross County Jail


Last year, in 2017, Marti keynoted the Annual Chamber of Commerce Dinner in Chillicothe, Ohio. She also visited the jail and spoke to the inmates at the request of a staff mental health professional. Marti’s comeback story is one of overcoming drug addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder, domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse, and human trafficking. She now holds five professional certifications in addiction treatment and is an expert in stress reduction, mindfulness meditation, and other life skills. Marti’s 2017 talk to the inmates was brief, because she was on her way to the airport, but she brought plenty of her signature humor and authenticity. Jail administrators invited her to return, so in May of this year (2018), Marti returned to Chillicothe, where she delivered three in-depth talks on life skills to inmates. She also spoke to individuals in recovery at a treatment center that focuses on medication-assisted treatment of opioid use disorder. Marti donated signed copies of her nationally award-winning and bestselling books, Never Give in to Fear and Fierce, Funny, and Female, to some of the audience members.
