About Angela

Angela Legh grew up in San Francisco, CA. She had an alcoholic father and an angelic mother, who both had a profound impact on her life. 

Her father taught her that the behaviors of others made her a powerless victim; her mother taught her to be loving to everyone; including those who hurt you. 

Angela’s family home was destroyed by fire when she was six years old. She grew up to marry an emotionally abusive man; she stayed for 32 years because she had not yet developed the internal strength to leave. 

Fire and water intruded on her life again with the 2017 Tubbs Wildfire in Northern California which reduced her home to ash. For the second time she almost drowned in the Atlantic off the coast of Portugal. 

The return of these earlier losses forced Angela to examine everything about herself and her life. 

Angela is now an author and self-development mentor. Her children’s book series, The Bella Santini Chronicles, has received high praise and is known for helping children learn how to manage their emotions. 

Her online course, entitled Live! Love! Laugh! gives adults in-depth insights into how to step out of victimhood and access your inner joy.
