Recently Jessica has become an advocate for women’s mental health. After battling both post-partum depression and “regular, run-of-the-mill garden-variety depression” (her words), she became a Life and Career Coach, and now tours regularly on motivational speaking circuits in addition to her work as an in-demand comedian. She has performed wellness keynotes for such companies as 3M, Allergan, Carstar, Deloitte, Genworth, Atlific Hotels, and Habitat for Humanity. 

Above all, Jessica urges communities to de-stigmatize mental health, and offers a healing message for all: when we acknowledge the inherent humor of our human condition, we can begin to accept ourselves for who we truly are—jokes, junk-food and all.

About 51%: In America, women make up more than half the population. Worldwide, women are expected to outnumber men within the next fifty years – and every issue we face is one that affects us all. Whether it’s the environment, health, our children, politics or the arts, there’s a women’s perspective, and 51% is a show dedicated to that viewpoint.

The program originates at WAMC Northeast Pubic Radio and airs throughout the U.S. on public and community radio stations, some ABC Radio Network stations, Armed Forces Radio stations around the world, on the internet, and as a podcast.

Natural Practitioner Features Bauman College Faculty

Natural Practitioner magazine featured our client Bauman College several times this year. Their editors came to trust Bauman College’s faculty as valuable news sources, available to provide expert commentary for their health and nutrition articles.

Bauman College, located in Berkeley and Penngrove, CA, is at the forefront of the holistic health movement. Their renowned Nutrition Consultant and Natural Chef programs are grounded in a scientific, evidence-based approach to nutrition, and they were some of the first in the world to develop and champion ideas now widely accepted in the whole foods movement.

Natural Practitioner is an industry trade magazine specifically for natural and alternative health care professionals, therefore a key target for Bauman College’s demographic.

In the June/July 2019 issue of Natural Practitioner Madeleine Buchanan, nutrition curriculum researcher with Bauman College, was quoted extensively in an article about pain management entitled, Toppling the Reign of Pain.

In the same issue, Jodi Friedlander, curriculum researcher, writer and editor at Bauman College, was featured throughout an article entitled Righting the Ship of Weight Management. In addition to discussing the science behind weight gain, Friedlander also discussed Bauman College’s Eating for Health program.

Bauman College was featured in other issues as well. This is another example of how building strong relationships with the media benefits both the journalist and the client. Journalists know they can trust our clients for accurate, professional information on short notice with a fast turnaround, and in turn our clients receive valuable third-party endorsements which builds authority, awareness and recognition for their institution, product, book, or practice.
