Natural Awakenings Twin Cities is Growing

Candi Broeffle, publisher of Natural Awakenings Twin Cities (NATC), is excited to announce the addition of two new staff members.

​SchaOn Blodgett will take on the role of advertising sales, assisting Broeffle in responding to increased advertising inquiries, reaching out to potential clients and assisting in events and expos. Blodgett has 20 years of sales experience as well as media experience including a position as community outreach manager for another Twin Cities publication in which he helped to grow its global and local readership. He also created a very popular podcast which continued for several years after he left the show. Blodgett recently received an award for "Top 100 Alternative Health Blogs for 2018" from Lost Empire Herbs. He is the owner of Psinergy Natural Health & Holistic Wellness, specializing in colorpuncture, Kirlian energy emission analysis and ayurvedic medicine.

"I'm very excited to be part of the NATC family as I have seen firsthand how important print publications are, especially for niche markets,” states Blodgett. “While I am a full-time holistic health professional with my own clinic here in the Twin Cities, I'm happy to bring my experience to Natural Awakenings and help to effectively connect other small businesses to their target markets."


Patricia (Patty) Perkins has been hired as office manager, providing office and operations support, outreach assistance and customer service to both readers and advertisers. She has extensive office and leadership experience mainly focused in the healthcare field and brings this much needed knowledge along with her organizational skills to NATC. Perkins is also a retired veteran of the United States Air Force.

“I am so thankful to have found two excellent professionals to support the efforts of Natural Awakenings,” Broeffle shares. “With SchaOn and Patty onboard, we are poised to substantially add even more valuable content for our readers and additional support for our advertisers. It’s truly an exciting time!”
