Episode 14: Finding boundaries, balance with Sarri Gilman
Chapter 1 – Sarri Gilman
Sarri Gilman helps others search for healthy boundaries and find balance in their lives.
A licensed psychotherapist, the Whidbey Island resident works with individuals, couples and families challenged with issues around relationships, emotions, mental health and being in a state of overwhelm.
Her boundary workshops help people understand how saying “Yes” or “No” is a guidance system – a compass – in life for every relationship and every decision.
Gilman shared her philosophy on stage at TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2015.

Chapter 2 – Selma Bonham
At 93, Selma Bonham has seen a few things.
Majoring in geology, she graduated from Penn State University and then earned a Master’s from Stanford in 1949. After 40 successful years in a male-dominated profession, Bonham retired and moved from the East Coast to Mill Creek and became involved with the Friends of the Mill Creek Library. Bonham says her awareness of civil rights began early when her father began hiring persons of color for skilled jobs in his department store. Later, at Mill Creek, Bonham organized a flash mob at the library to sing in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
