On this edition of Valerie's New Jersey, Valerie speaks with first time author, businesswoman and philanthropist Lauren Pizza.

Lauren's book, Meant to Be, the Lives and Loves of a Jersey Girl is funny, inspirational and spiritual. Lauren begins life under very ordinary circumstances, and after a near death experience at the age of 13, everything changes.

She meets a musician who becomes her husband, at the same spot where she almost drowned years before. His story is extraordinary as well, and the two go on to live a life of incredible wealth, but are devoted to giving back.

Find out about Lauren's journey to heaven and back, and her philosophy on life and love on this week's podcast. To learn more go to www.laurenpizza.com
