Founder and Chief Chill Officer

Stress grabbed my attention when one of the world’s largest brain tumors was discovered in my head shortly after my 10th birthday. A stress-case all the way through college, I reluctantly enrolled in a stress management class that led to much less stress, a degree in public health, a job as Columbia University’s health education director and now a career as a global stress management speaker, trainer and author. For 25-years, I’ve been privileged to help and learn from 9/11 survivors, teachers, CEOs, police officers, incarcerated adults, students and lots of other stressed people who want to be more successful, get better grades, sleep easier and just feel better.

In 2004, I founded The Stress Coach to provide engaging workshops, multimedia webinars, chill apps, online courses and more stress-relief opportunities. The Chill Factory podcast is my latest effort to bring stress relief and better health to the world.

After graduating from the University of Maryland where I took that first stress management class, I moved to peaceful New York City which is where I wrote The Stress Manager’s Manual, co-authored The Go Ask Alice Book Of Answers, and where my great-grandfather invented the reversible garment 100 years ago.
