After 20 years working in nonprofit food advocacy, focusing on raising awareness and helping create a healthy, sustainable food system for all, I’ve expanded my focus to align with the changing face of sustainability and whole health.
The intent of the work is the same – to develop and implement marketing and communications programs; organize and host both large and small events; and undertake various strategies to help maximize health of body, mind and spirit.
This includes a healthy, safe, delicious, fair food system for all. Whole Healthy Group LLC works with for profits and nonprofits. More and more companies, and especially startups, understand that consumers want whole health, as well as transparency and authenticity from the companies they buy from.
We help you make this happen.
WHG helps you create the change you want to see – and that the planet needs.
