Meet Kelly Addington & Becca Tieder...
Kelly and Becca are experts on sexual assault awareness and prevention and sexual empowerment and have been nationally recognized for their achievements in sexual assault education. Since 2003, Kelly and Becca have shared their messages with hundreds of college campuses, reaching more than half a million students and have had the honor of working with members of the various branches of the US Military.
In 2006, the duo founded the Unite for Change Campaign to provide educational resources that promote sexual assault awareness and prevention. On Valentine's Day in 2009, they launched the innovative educational tools, Sexversations® and later that year announced their acquisition of the No Woman Left Behind Campaign, a nation-wide bystander intervention initiative. In 2010, they founded the non-profit organization, One Student, based on their core belief that one sexual assault is too many and one student can make a difference. One Student provides students and their allies with programs, resources, and opportunities to create social change and help reduce sexual violence.
Kelly and Becca are activists, educators, authors, and advocates, but their endless drive and their ever-growing number of frequent flyer miles comes from their desire to bring communities together to enact change.
Meet Natalie Butler...
Natalie has always been a food enthusiast, and even in childhood was nicknamed the "Food Police" by her family. She was always aware of what other people were eating and would voice her concerns if she didn't agree with their portion sizes or food choices. Natalie's innate sense of balanced eating combined with family members that were struggling with digestive issues made nutrition a deeply interesting field of study.
Natalie herself suffered from years of extreme gastro- intestinal symptoms in college stemming from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, commonly known as IBS, but found little relief through conventional treatment. Her own personal battle with IBS led her to research and utilize appropriate diets and alternative therapies, including the use of digestive enzymes and probiotics. Natalie has since been symptom-free and maintains a deeply held passion for helping those with digestive disorders.
Now a registered dietician, Natalie completed her graduate dietetic internship through Marywood University and graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Science in food, nutrition, and dietetics. Her well-rounded, holistic view of nutrition and health became the foundation for her own practice, Nutrition By Natalie, founded in 2005. Natalie consults individuals, families, groups, and businesses on all aspects of nutrition and health, including weight loss, digestive disorders, and preventative health. In addition to working with clients in her private practice, Natalie writes health-related articles for magazines, websites, and books, is featured on radio programs, speaks at events and conferences worldwide, is a spokesperson for various health food companies, works part-time as a clinical dietician at a local hospital, and provides free nutrition education videos on the Internet. Natalie is inspired by helping others achieve their goals and knows that the primary way of doing this is by living what she preaches. It is her utmost priority to be healthy, active, and fit. She currently resides in Austin, Texas with her husband Craig, and their son Hudson and dog Chance.
Meet Amy Castronova...
Amy bought her first business at age 20. She was an ambitious college student ready for a challenge. She was also young, inexperienced and quite nervous. After the business purchase was complete, Amy recalls the moments of fear and doubt and asking herself, "What did I get myself into?"
Immediately, Amy faced critical leadership challenges. She inherited a staff of 20 people, most twice her age. Clients were three times her senior and apprehensive about her abilities. The company's largest client, Kodak, was eliminating suppliers and forcing price reductions. Client diversification was necessary to survive, but the company did not have a strategy.
Amy had to step up and lead. Setting fear and doubt aside, Amy turned these challenges into opportunities. In the first 5 years, she annually led the company to double-digit growth and increased staff by 30 percent, all while leading herself and her family through the long battles and eventual death of both her parents.
Amy made her first multi-million at age 23. At age 24 she was named an Up and Coming Business Woman of Rochester, by age 25 she was recognized among women presidents nationally as the Rising Star, and at age 26, the U.S. Small Business Administration named her the Young Entrepreneur of the Year at three different competitions. Today she is the youngest Trustee at Clarkson University. Now Amy is sharing her secrets to leadership success with young leaders across the country.
