Kristen Chase

I spent most of my childhood dodging mean words and sticks or spoons, then left as soon as I could — the ripe young age of 16 — to start college. I threw myself into education, and earned a degree in music therapy in just under 3 years, then working with children with disabilities, through graduate school, and right into a position as a college professor.

Margit Detweiler

In my mid 40s I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. It was a total fluke that they found it. My gynecologist discovered it after she removed what appeared to be a benign cyst. There were microscopic cancer cells lining that cyst. I sort of praise that cyst every day — without it, the doctor said I could have gone for years not knowing the cancer was growing inside me.

Patricia San Pedro

I have always been a positive person who sees the glass not just full, but overflowing. Little did I know how life would test me, a self-employed single woman, with no children or siblings. It all began on April 10th, 2008 when I heard those words no one wants to hear “You have breast cancer.” Read more >

Tammi Leader Fuller

When I walked away from that big Hollywood so many dream about, to help women re-examine their lives and get unstuck, I had no idea how hard it was going be to help other women find their place in the world. Because I still hadn’t found mine. Read more >

Shelly Fisher – Founder

After my second diagnosis with cancer, right when I felt like life pulled the carpet out from underneath me, I hit bottom. But one day about a week later, in my head, I thought, “You have done this before, you can do this again. You are one tough bitch. Get it together!” The thought jolted me – it is not the kind of thing I would normally think, but it gave me the push I needed. Read more >

How OTB helped Tammi Leader Fuller & Campowerment through Hard Times

Meet Tammi Leader Fuller, one of our OTB Sisterhood Founding members, and founder of Give Her Camp and Campowerment. In November 2018, her business lost everything in the Malibu Fires. She’s sharing her story of how One Tough Bitch got her through, and continues to lift her up during this difficult time of rebuilding. From the moment I heard about One Tough Bitch, I knew I had one living deep inside me, usually rearing her lovely head to take me out of mine in the 11th hour of whatever crisis was in front of me, when I really need her to comfort my crazy, like last week as I headed up to Malibu to see the remains of a dream I’ve had, reduced to ashes in those horrific fires last month. I threw on my One Tough Bitch jean jacket the moment I got in the car, hoping she would come through for me as I prepared to walk through the destruction on that hilltop. I’m not sure I could have endured this without her. For 34 years, I was a TV News Producer, and in 2013, walked out of the control room and into the woods to create Campowerment, [...]
