Generally, springtime is considered a season of change and renewal. Here at Healthy Living and Wellness Magazine, change has come this summer.
Editor Grace E. Olson bids the magazine farewell. Grace has over seven years of editorial experience in the health and wellness industry. She was brought on in early 2021 to lead Healthy Living and Wellness and has since provided excellent editorial guidance. The Multi Media Channels, LLC family wishes Grace success in her new endeavor and thanks her for her hard work.
My name is John McCracken and I have taken over as Interim Editor for HLW. I will only be in this role for this issue during this transitional period. The new Editor will come aboard for the October issue.
As noted by our cover story on page 28, change is a necessary part of growth. When Richard and Tracy Vinz launched their online farmers market platform in Northeast Wisconsin, they didn´t know what was ahead. All they knew was customers were hungry for healthy produce and the COVID-19 pandemic halted all normal channels of buying and selling fresh veggies. They grew to meet demands.
During this transitional phase, I want to thank all of the MMC team who work on the HLW publication, especially Senior Graphic Designer Kimberly Byrne. Kimberly is a great resource and a very talented designer who helped me greatly.
Thank you for reading. Let´s look forward—together.
