On November 30, 2012 Dave and I (and CK and Ernie, the cats!) crossed the border

Welcome to Colorful Colorado

into Colorful Colorado and our new life.

Not yet three months later, we are both feeling as if we are home. Dave is coaching several new athletes and spending time at the Olympic Training Center and with the USA Swimming Association.  I am continuing my work with my east and west coastconsulting clients, and have taken on a local nonprofit client. More importantly, I have carved the time to focus on my “other”, new career: vegan lifestyle coaching, education and writing.

I recently had the opportunity to meet the food editor of the only daily paper in Colorado Springs, The Gazette. Over lunch Teresa Farney asked me lots of great questions about my vegan diet, my upcoming book (with co-author Ginny Messina), and my coaching and classes. Ultimately she interviewed me for an article that hit the paper yesterday, Vegan virtues: Diet is difficult yet rewarding.

Vegan Virtues The Gazette

I love this piece because it captures both the health and ethical entry to veganism and answers and debunks myths around protein and supplementing. The article also created buzz around my local education efforts and registrations for my March vegan lifestyle class came streaming in all morning. (I’m about to start a waiting list; if you want in, register now!)

Teresa also invited me to be a guest on her weekly radio show Table Talk[click to continue…]
