Joffre McClung is Spiritual/Personal Growth Author and Teacher, an Inspirational Blogger, Self-love Advocate, and an Independent Filmmaker. Joffre began her career as a theatre actress in New York City where she spent most of her adult life. Being someone one “who never waited for permission to do anything,” she quickly put on her producing hat when auditioning was taking a back seat to performing and mounted several Off-Broadway productions, in which she acted as well produced.

Uprooting her life in New York City to return to Texas to help her mother deal with terminal cancer was an intense experience, but Joffre did the only thing she knew to do and used her personal experiences as a tool for spiritual growth.  Immediately after her mother’s passing, Joffre found out that her lifelong best friend Rob was also diagnosed with cancer.

Instead of allowing these back-to-back tragedies to destroy her emotionally, Joffre went inward to find the strength and techniques that would help her heal emotionally, and find the lessons in these painful experiences that would not only allow her to go on with her life but to make the most of it.  She did not know at the time how these experiences would change the direction of her life.
