It’s Time for Eat REAL, America

It’s Time for Eat REAL, America

March 27, 2018, Vol.16, Issue 2 What a difference a decade makes — well, make that two decades. It’s been twenty years since Zonya Foco, RD, CSP, debuted her first cookbook, Lickety-Split Meals for Health Conscious People on the Go. My copy is certainly stained and well worn with favorite recipes I’ve made over and… Continue Reading

Going to the Dogs

Going to the Dogs

Jan. 30, 2018 Vol.16, Issue 1 As I scrolled through a Google alert, the big brown eyes of a beagle staring out at me caught my eye, even though the image was just the size of a postage stamp. It was the cover of a book. Clicking on it for a closer look, I found… Continue Reading

Hindsight?

Hindsight?

Dec. 19, 2017, Vol.15, Issue 10 There’s a story behind the spectacular sunset pictured above that reminds me that behind a moment’s disappointment, unexpected and wonderful things may be unfolding brilliantly. It was Tuesday, Dec. 12, and my husband and I had been at the beach — Cannon Beach, Oregon – since Sunday to celebrate… Continue Reading

Bon Appetit to Choices

Bon Appetit to Choices

Nov. 17, 2017,  Vol.15, Issue 9 Starting next week ’tis the season of food, food, and more food. And these days, that means more people with food sensitivities in the mix. A few weeks ago, I found myself creating a family dinner that included a mix of diners who were gluten-free, vegan and nut-free (allergic).… Continue Reading

Simple Choices PLUS Sistering

Simple Choices PLUS Sistering

Oct. 19, 2017 Vol.15, Issue 8 Since I last wrote, I’ve been on vacation in Michigan for almost two weeks, and then on a field trip to Bismarck, ND, where long-time client Reach Partners hosted their annual Women’s Health Conference. I’ve worked with them on their women’s health conferences in Fargo and Bismarck for fifteen… Continue Reading

Man on a Mission – Part 2: Compassionate Care

Man on a Mission – Part 2: Compassionate Care

Aug. 3, 2017, Vol.15, Issue 7 In our last blog, I introduced you to Lee Tomlinson, cancer survivor speaker, and advocate for compassionate care. We covered his journey from thriving executive and adventurer, to thriving cancer survivor and speaker — sharing his story and passion for life, inspiring other cancer survivors. I told you then… Continue Reading

Man on a Mission – Part 1

Man on a Mission – Part 1

July 20, 2017, Vol.15, Issue 6 A gravelly voice would not necessarily be considered an asset for a professional speaker. But in the case of throat cancer survivor speaker Lee Tomlinson, he is grateful to have a voice, period, and his raspy voice just enhances the power of his message. Today — just having passed… Continue Reading

Breaking Free from The Stress Club

Breaking Free from The Stress Club

May 25, 2017, Vol.15, Issue 5 Are you participating in The Stress Club? Our speaker, Tami West, PhD, observed that women appear to be endorsing stress, i.e. they boast about the stress (read busy-ness) in their lives. They reinforce it with other women, and they don’t give themselves or each other a break. Tami thought… Continue Reading

Having Caring Conversations

Having Caring Conversations

April 27, 2017 Vol.15, Issue 4 It wasn’t my everyday speaker inquiry — Nicky Upson, Communication Specialist at Providence Health and Services, SW Washington, was asking for a speaker on Advance Directives for an event celebrating National Healthcare Decisions Day. I was momentarily puzzled; I’d never been asked for that topic. My next thought was,… Continue Reading

What Ta-Tas Teach Us

What Ta-Tas Teach Us

Vol.15, Issue 3, March 30, 2017 Anyone who has had a cancer experience in their family knows that it’s as much a life-changing experience for the family (and friends) as for the patient. Difficult as it may be, there are people in the world like our speaker, Jane Jenkins Herlong, who take that experience and… Continue Reading
