Dear Beloved Readers,
As I sit down to pen this letter, my heart is brimming with gratitude, nostalgia and a touch of melancholy. It is with a mix of emotions that I announce my departure as the publisher of Natural Awakenings Twin Cities. After six remarkable years of being a part of this vibrant community, the time has come for me to pass the torch to a new chapter of leadership.
Reflecting on my journey, I am filled with profound appreciation for the opportunity to have served as a steward of this magazine. What began as a professional endeavor quickly transformed into a deeply personal connection. Natural Awakenings Twin Cities has not only been a publication, but rather a hub of inspiration, growth and community, and I am deeply honored to have been part of this vertical movement.
The memories I’ve incurred are a tapestry of laughter, challenges overcome and milestones celebrated. From the passionate contributors who poured their wisdom onto these pages to the dedicated team that worked tirelessly behind the scenes, each one involved has left an indelible mark.
Yet, after it all, what truly stands out as the heart of this journey are the people. It's you—cherished readers, advertisers, contributors and partners—who have breathed life into these pages. The countless conversations, emails and letters sharing your stories, successes and challenges have affirmed the impact of Natural Awakenings Twin Cities in your lives. Your unwavering support fueled our passion and fortified our commitment to delivering content that resonated with your quests for wellness and mindful living.
Although I'm bidding adieu as the publisher, I am not saying goodbye to the wellness community we've nurtured together. The spirit of Natural Awakenings Twin Cities lives on in the pages that will continue to grace your hands and hearts. The platform we've built together will continue to inspire, educate, and connect individuals seeking a path of holistic well-being.
I am thrilled to introduce you to Jordan Peschek, the new owner and publisher of Natural Awakenings Twin Cities magazine. With a remarkable journey as the publisher of the Milwaukee edition of Natural Awakenings for the past two years, Jordan has earned an impressive track record of consistently ranking in the Top 10 Natural Awakenings franchises every month. Her dedication to natural health, community-building, and empowering others to succeed resonates deeply with the core values of our magazine. Jordan embodies the vigor of a Millennial, infusing her passion and energy into everything she does. I am confident that under her guidance, the magazine will continue to flourish and inspire our community toward a path of well-being and conscious living.
Thank you once again, dear readers, for allowing me to be a part of your lives. Thank you for your trust, your loyalty, and your unwavering support. I leave this role with a heart full of gratitude and a sense of fulfillment that comes from knowing I've been a part of something truly special.
Wishing you wellness,
