Back in February 2011, a friend of mine gave me a shout to help write and edit a few pages for a website called Healthy Living Canada. It was a small, simple website listing a variety of wellness resources and vendors in Canada. To keep this story relatively short, I came out of my first meeting with them with questions about their vision for the site, where they wanted it to go, and how they would go about doing that. We all realized the site could be much more. HLC brought an amazing Project Leader, Kyla Gaertner, on board to revitalize the site and build the business into a full fledged, nationally-focused website that is now called tuja wellness. After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, the site finally launched this past week!
I have had the pleasure of writing all the vendor write-ups for the Banff/Canmore destination, writing articles for the site, providing some general consulting and kick-starting their social media platforms. It is so nice to start tapping into my own interest in health and wellness and have a place to share my research and thoughts. I look forward to seeing tuja wellness continue to evolve and grow. You can learn more about the amazing tuja wellness team here.
Running with Bears
OK, I’m not really running with bears, but I recently wrote a piece for IMPACT Magazine about how trail runners can avoid dangerous encounters with wildlife on the trails! The Wild Run appeared in the May/June 2012 issue (pgs. 82-83). You can read the article in IMPACT’s digital edition or pick up a copy of the magazine at locations throughout Alberta and B.C.
Thanks for reading this update, and have a great week!
