I am very excited to be part of "Bridging the Gap" campaign! The Bridging the Gap campaign took 100mid lifers and 100 millennials and teamed them together. I have always been friends with people of different ages, genders, races and religions. What moved me to be part of this groundbreaking event is that It never mattered to me the label of a person...all that mattered was the person had a good heart and we had a few things in common. Some of my best friends are in their 80's and others are in their 20's. I have never let an age gap dictate my friendship and have always believed we are stronger together. So when I was asked to find a millennial to interview... I immediately knew who to contact. This leads me to introduce you to one of my best friends, Anne Therese Bengtsson who is 26 years old! She is truly a beacon of light and one must be careful not to get blinded by her wattage. I met Anne Therese with some friends one night for an event she was hosting and we quickly became inseparable. We just feel so connected. She has taught me so much and I have (hopefully) taught and mentored her. At 26, Anne Therese is a very insightful and brilliant young lady. One of the subjects I was interested in interviewing her on was how to stay healthy on a plant based diet. Listen to our podcast here http://heychange.net/episodes/923/.

Josh Rosebrook’s Nutrient Day Cream and I are having a love affair. This delicious nutrient day cream contains SPF 30! Now I can get a super rich and luxe day cream with SPF and not have to worry about nasty chemicals. In the summer I like to spend my time outdoors in the sun, hiking, biking, swimming, river rafting (a recent photo below) and I don't leave my house without an SPF sunscreen. I love the fact that it is in glass bottles so it doesn't pollute our oceans with ugly plastic. Also, Josh understands the universal truth that our bodies know best and how to heal themselves. His high quality products support the skin by first addressing the root problem of aging: inflammation. Josh Rosebrook skin and hair care brings a refreshing, holistic approach. Click on photo.
