M Jensen-Middlebrook

Traveling down this road of reinvention, redefining what it means to grow older, I'm taking the “road less traveled by” and am inspired to create in the Last Best Place where each day becomes a discovery of new trails to try. I've had an opportunity to work with industry leaders in the for-profit and non-profit sectors. Currently, I operate Jensen Consulting and am a partner of the website Bette Boomer founded to showcase innovative and unique resources to ageless baby boomers who continue to think outside the box and inspire others. A native Montanan currently living in Missoula, I have lived and adventured widely, including having hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim in a single day.

Microbreweries: 'Green' Beer

Unlike earlier crafted organic wines, organic beers are fantastically flavorful. Many craft brewers already make mindful business decisions based on minimizing environmental impact, and being socially responsible contributors to their communities. Image: stevendepolo via Flickr ...more
