Featured post: JuicePlus

Length of time you’ve been in business: 9 years

Why did you get into your industry? What is your goal/mission?  I’m passionate about helping families and individuals be well, specifically by promoting simple ways of eating more Fruits and Vegetables for their profound, life-enhancing nutritional and health benefits.  My goal is to help others improve and maintain their health in a fun, simple and doable way with Tower Garden and JuicePlus+ and to continue building a team of High Integrity, professional, health focused, kind and compassionate, effective leaders to spread this mission with me around the world. 

Your specialty – the reason people choose you:  I work with my clients/customers to make positive wellness choices, with JuicePlus+ and TowerGarden as catalysts for healthy changes, one small consistant step at a time. 

Your favorite part about doing business in Flagstaff:  We LOVE Flagstaff!  Of course the Mountains, Pines and Beauty of Nature– we love the safer family friendly atmosphere, the slower pace, the easy going style, the schools, our friends, our church community, the high altitude, snow, sun, clean air and water, skiing, biking, hiking, swimming ….and so much more!

Who is your favorite local non-profit or charitable organization? Why?  Many of them!  Hope Cottage, St. Vincent de Paul, Northland Hospice, Threshold  Choir, Poore Medical Clinic, our local shelters for men, women and children, and the many groups who care for our beautiful environment, the many churches who reach out to lift up our community in positive ways, and many more.  There’s a level of genuine care and service in Flagstaff that is rare! 

Do you have any special events coming up? What are they?  I will be presenting at the GORE Employee Health Fair in May, which I’m looking forward to.  I offer lunch and learn Wellness Presentations in schools, churches, medical offices and business offices, schools, churches, and in homes, as well.

Are you hiring?  I interview Professionals interested in Wellness, who share the mission/goals I’ve listed above.

Spirit of the Enterprise Award

Help Honor the Best Businesses in Arizona
Nominate Your Favorite for a Spirit of Enterprise Award

TEMPE, Ariz. (April 2, 2013) — Want to help honor your favorite Arizona company? Nominate it for a 2013 Spirit of Enterprise Award.

The awards from the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University recognize some of Arizona’s best businesses for creating jobs, boosting our economy and treating customers right. Past winners include well-known names like Cold Stone Creamery, China Mist, Ollie the Trolley and Total Transit (Discount Cab), as well as rapidly growing businesses, such as GlobalMed and WebPT.

“We’re looking for firms that demonstrate ethics, energy and excellence in entrepreneurship,” says Gary Naumann, director of the Spirit of Enterprise Center at the W. P. Carey School of Business. “They should have a great story and a positive culture internally, and be exemplary community partners in terms of how they give back.”

You can nominate any company that is:

  • A for-profit enterprise in business for at least four years;
  • Incorporated, headquartered or having a majority of its business operations in Arizona;
  • Employing at least three or more full-time workers;
  • Able to demonstrate profitability over the last three years combined.

In addition, one minority-owned business will receive the Gary L. Trujillo Minority Enterprise Award sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona.

Once a company is nominated, it will have until July 31 to complete an awards application.

The winners of the 17th annual Spirit of Enterprise Awards will be announced at a luncheon at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix on Nov. 22. Hundreds of Arizona business and community leaders attend this annual event.

For more information on nominating a company, applying for the awards, or attending the luncheon, call (480) 965-0474 or visit

These awards are just one focus of the Spirit of Enterprise Center, which helps hundreds of businesses each year. The center offers companies the chance to recruit and meet with top student talent, while also allowing students to get hands-on business experience. In addition, companies can use the center to access other ASU business resources. The center is self-funded and utilizes community sponsorships and volunteers to sustain its activities.
