The NWI Podcast # 38 - Cycling Without Age

Posted By Caroline Carlson, Friday, June 22, 2018
Updated: Thursday, June 14, 2018

Dr. Tori Jennings and Dr. Annie Wetter discuss “Cycling Without Age,” an innovative community program to engage and connect with our seniors.

In this interview, Dr. Tori Jennings and Dr. Annie Wetter discuss Cycling Without Age, a non-profit volunteer-run program that takes older adults and adults with differing abilities on free bicycle rides in a trishaw. Tori initiated the Stevens Point Chapter of Cycling Without Age, and Annie is a partner in this effort. The Stevens point chapter of Cycling Without Age is part of a world wide movement to connect older adults to cycling, the outdoors, and the community.

Tory Jennings, P.h.D.Tori Jennings, PhD (left), is a cultural anthropologist. She has been teaching anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for 8 years as an adjunct professor. In addition to teaching, Tori was elected to the Stevens Point City Council in 2017. From 2015 to 2017, she served as chair of the city’s Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee.

Annie Wetter, P.h.D. Annie Wetter, PhD (right), is president of Portage

County CAN, a coalitiondedicated to promoting healthy eating and physical activity. CAN does this primarily by fostering a partnership between individuals, agencies, and resources in the community to increase the capac

ity of existing efforts and spark new initiatives among stakeholders. Cycling Without Age is a perfect example of this work.

Annie is also Professor of Nutrition in the School of Health Promotion & Human Development at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

I only recently discovered the Cycling Without Age program, but the crucial social connection it makes with seniors makes it unquestionably clear how important it is. As you listen to this interview, imagine how having this program available in every community could benefit not just its seniors, but all of us.

The NWI Podcast # 37 - Jade Pelton

Posted By Caroline Carlson, Friday, June 8, 2018

Jade PeltonJade Pelton talks about how the emerging profession of Peer Support Specialist is providing hope and support to those recovering from addiction and mental health challenges.

Jade is a Peer Recovery Specialist at Northpoint Health and Wellness located in North Minneapolis, MN. She has been a Specialist for over a year now and was trained at Minnesota Recovery Connection a small grassroots Recovery Community Organization. She volunteered there doing Telephone recovery support for many months as well as starting a peer led meeting with a co-worker and helping out at the annual walk fundraiser. She previously volunteered for a year co-facilitating a National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) connections group and has attended NAMI conferences to stay abreast of the issues that face her community. She is in active long term recovery and finds this line of work not only rewarding but crucial to her recovery. Her powerful story speaks of the struggle of overcoming a life full of trauma and coming through it by using the experience of it to help others through their own.

Jade has a wonderful sense of humor and is gifted in reaching people with her spoken word or prose. She is also a mixed media artist meaning that she is not just talented in one art form but several and she hopes to start her own small business selling this art in order to save for her dream of starting a large non-profit that truly caters to individuals with co-occurring disorders.

The NWI Podcast #34 - Jessica Davenport

Posted By Caroline Carlson, Saturday, May 5, 2018
Updated: Friday, May 4, 2018

Jessica DavenportJessica Davenport, aka "The Narcolepsy Whisperer" discusses sleep disorders, their diagnosis and surprisingly common mis-diagnoses, and how critical it is that we make getting quality sleep a priority.

Jessica Davenport, BS, is the founder and owner of Wellness Dreamer, a health and wellness company she created in 2017.  She is a leading advocate for sleep health and sleep disorders in the South Florida area and has spent 10 years in the health and wellness industry.

Jessica holds a bachelor's degree in Wellness Leadership from the University of South Florida. She is a certified Health & Wellness Coach through Wellcoaches and a certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise. Jessica has held positions with a variety of companies ranging from a global human capital management (HCM) software company to one of the largest health insurance providers in the United States.  Prior to founding Wellness Dreamer, she was the Wellness Specialist for a Credit Union Service Organization where she managed all the wellness programs for over 1700 employees.

Jessica is extremely passionate about health and wellness as a whole but has a particular and focused interest in sleep health and sleep disorders. If you ask her she’ll tell you she’s a “Sleep Geek”. This interest stems from the fact that she knows exactly what it’s like to be a sleepy person. Living with the invisible symptoms of multiple sleep disorders for over a decade, they culminated just prior to college and were eventually diagnosed as sleep apnea in 2007 and narcolepsy type II in 2010. 

Because of her battle with sleep disorders, she felt the need to create more awareness in her own community. In 2014, in conjunction with Project Sleep, Jessica hosted the very first Sleep Walk Tampa Bay event. In 2015, she co-founded Sleep Tampa Bay, a grassroots organization dedicated to advocating for sleep health and sleep disorder awareness in the Tampa Bay area. Since 2015 Sleep Tampa Bay has hosted community events twice a year where they help others wake up to the importance of sleep and also how to recognize if they have a sleep disorders.

In 2017, Jessica united her 10 years of experience in the wellness industry with her personal experiences and passion for change to create Wellness Dreamer, a health and wellness company that offers one-on-one and group wellness coaching, consulting services for corporate wellness clients, personal training, and professional speaking services.

Billie is a licensed therapist, a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, a Board Certified Coach, an ACE Certified Health Coach and is the Master Coach for ACE’s Behavior Change Specialist program.

The NWI Podcast #30 and 31 - Lorie Marsh

Posted By Caroline Carlson, Monday, April 9, 2018

Part 1

 

Part 2

 

Learn about Lorie’s techniques to help you become the Hero and the Author of your own life story for getting “un-stuck” and experiencing self-discovery and personal growth.

 

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Lorie Marsh, Writer. Speaker. Visual Storyteller. Awareness Igniter. Soul Booster. Her mission is to show how to use your story to tap into your inner wisdom and move you forward on your path with more clarity, focus, and purpose.

After two decades in indie film, theater, multi-platform narratives, and “script doctoring,” Lorie Marsh is steeped in Storytelling. Everything is a story to her. She developed her self-inquiry framework from a personal need, “I found myself at an undeniable dead end on a path I’d hacked at for almost 20 years. It was scary and overwhelming to feel I was in a free fall, having no ‘map’ anymore for myself. I came to realize, though, that I could find my way back to center by using the skills I’d developed over all those years: I needed to review my life as the epic story it is, and I’d find my answers.” She writes, speaks, and creates workshops to guide others from their day-to-day Hero views to their higher level Creator/Author perspective in order to tap their inner wisdom, find center and focus, and map out their next chapters in purposeful ways.
