Work With Us
Author: Roxan McDonald
Roxan McDonald, the author behind Knock Knock’s inspirational decks Spiritual AF and Grateful AF, is a writer, teacher, workshop facilitator, coach, and public speaker. Roxan holds a BA in Interdisciplinary Education from California Institute of Integral Studies. (She still doesn't quite understand what "integral" means so please don't ask.) In 2019 she earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Pacific University. She currently leads writing and personal development retreats and co-teaches with poet Ellen Bass, author of The Courage to Heal, at 1440 Multiversity and Esalen Institute. Coming from a family in which women do not graduate high school, Roxan views her education as one of her highest achievements.
At age 15, Roxan got sober and currently celebrated 28 years of recovery. During this time, she spent fourteen years working on the front lines of addiction and trauma recovery. In 2013, Roxan created her @Spiritual_AF Instagram account because she was immensely grateful and increasingly spiritual, but wasn’t seeing her reverent irreverence and potty mouth expressed in the self-help realm. She continues to connect with others who feel the same way—over 85,000 of them.
