these incredible ladies are teaming up to bring a whole lot of healthy into our homes
Welcome Dana Lord Lewis, Dara Treseder, Eve Rodsky, Lili Pettit, Mansi Pathak, Audrey Cleo Yap and Angelique Jackson to the #BlogHer community — and give it up for SHE Media’s own Lindsay Valdez and Amanda Lederman!
Just in case you needed ANOTHER reason to be psyched for #BlogHer20 Healthy at Home on May 20th, we’ve got even more awesome speakers to announce. These ladies know their way around the digital stratosphere, and they’re signing on to help you learn, grow your business and blog, and of course, how to healthify your quarantine time — mentally, physically, fiscally, and beyond.
We’ll kick-start our half-day of programming with an energy boost from the lovely Dana Lord Lewis. Dana is a personal coach, attorney, and practitioner of what she calls “practical spirituality.” She’ll present the tools to begin your day grounded and help us manifest the happiness, power, and success we deserve!
Later, Dara Treseder and Eve Rodsky will take the virtual stage together for our “Working Mom’s Playbook to Quarantine” panel, alongside the lovely Karolina Kurkova — AKA, one of the last true supermodels. Dara is a globally acclaimed business leader who holds a spot in the American Advertising Hall of Achievement and currently holds the position of Chief Marketing Officer at Carbon (a global 3D printing company) as well as Co-Founder NeuBridges, a marketing and innovation consultancy. She’s also a proud mom of two!
The equally fabulous Eve Rodsky is a New York Times best-selling author, known for her ground-breaking book “Fair Play,” which unpacks the chronic imbalance of modern day marriage. Women are working now more than ever, but they’re still coming home to the household responsibilities of their house-wife grandmothers. “Fair Play” helps couples implement a more balanced understanding of responsibilities in the home and reimagine their relationships — we’re so here for it.

We got all dressed up in Nigerian attire for my dad’s Zoom birthday party. My 4yr old sang a song she wrote for her Grandpa. This time last year we were in Nigeria celebrating with him. So much has happened in a year, but we are full of gratitude that we can stay connected while we are physically apart. #QuarantineDiary #GratitudeJournal #NaijaMom #TeaWithTheTreseders
Lili Pettit will join us for a breath work workshop in the mid-afternoon — set to be far more effective and grounding than that late-in-the-day cup of coffee! Her booming platform, Clutter Healing, ® Inc., was created with the intention of helping others take responsibility for their own healing. Lilli firmly believes that we all have the ability to heal ourselves, our stories and our past, no matter what cards life has dealt.
#BlogHer20 Health speaker Mansi Pathak is returning to the #BlogHer stage — virtually! Mansi has always held a vested interest in both the parts of one’s health they can control, like diet and exercise, and those that they can’t — their genes. Mansi’s career has allowed her to develop her interest in genetics and empower others to do the same!
Super-star interviewers Audrey Cleo Yap and Angelique Jackson will be joining us from our sister company Variety. Angelique is a red carpet reporter for Variety, covering film events as Events and Lifestyle Producer, and is based in Los Angeles. Audrey is a southern California native and news host at Variety, as well as a seasoned entertainment/sports journalist. She has been seen on Access Hollywood, Access Daily, HLN, TV Guide Network, and more.
Last but certainly not least are SHE Media’s very own dynamic duo, Director of SEO Lindsay Valdez and Community Manager Amanda Lederman. We’re so proud to share the learnings and talents of these two with our BlogHer community — and can’t wait to take notes from them, and all of our other badass speakers come May 20th!
