About the Author
I’m a professional journalist, Senior Staff Writer and the National Director of Community Outreach for Natural Awakenings, a healthy lifestyle publication that has been in print for more than 20 years. Nearly 4 million readers, who appreciate cutting edge information on everything from natural health and nutrition to fitness, personal growth and green living, enjoy my stories. Like Geri Weis Corbley, the founder of Good News, I’ve come to recognize that while the general media falls miserably short of reporting positive news, there is truly an abundance of uplifting stories that deserve attention. I’ve interviewed thousands of individuals who are living purposeful and meaningful lives intent on bringing about change in everything from natural and traditional medicine to finance, education, and government. Theirs are the stories I have told for more than 10 years. Unfortunately, the archived stories along with all my unused recorded interviews and notes are just gathering dust. This website is a good place to resurrect them and blog about what radio broadcaster Paul Harvey made famous—The Rest of the Story. Only about half of my interviews actually make it to the printed page because of word count restriction, an ailment that the majority of journalists suffer from.
As the host of Rethinking Health Matters, a radio show in collaboration with GreenMedInfo.com, I’ve interviewed many fascinating individuals who have important information that much of the general public is unaware of. Additionally, as the organizer and host of the “first-ever” online summit on Metabolic Syndrome, I relished bringing attention to a national and global health crisis unrecognized by the general public. As a journalist, I enjoy researching my stories that are intended to educate in layman’s language. From thousands of wise people I’ve garnered some very important facts—there is never only one answer to any problem, no one person knows everything, we’re all in this together, change is the only currency, and we need whole-systems thinkers and pioneering minds to tackle our failing iconic institutions. This website will showcase pioneering minds and whole-systems thinkers, two categories essential to the future of healthy communities and a healthy planet.
We all need to consider ourselves as “Pioneers of the New Millennium”. None of us has ever been here before. While our planet has undeniably gone through changes before, there have never before been 7 billion people facing the challenges of environmental disasters that now plague our world. My work has proven to me that it really does take a village to solve a problem and a combination of treatments to heal a health challenge. This “work in progress” website of articles, podcasts, and videos will be made up of a village of people who are doing just that.
