#StandingOut with Lucy Pelligrino and Katrina Padron

February 7, 2018

Lucy Pellegrino, the Founder of Slick Lizard Design, LLC., has over twenty year’s experience launching and marketing hundreds of products for top tier consumer electronics companies including, Apple Computer, NEC, Canon USA, Nokia, Nikon and others.

With a love of accessories, passion for good design and an expensive electronics habit, Lucy was tired of settling for cases and bags that fell short of her expectations in some way. She decided to take matters into her own hands and in 2016 launched Slick Lizard Design.

Without a creative outlet Lucy would be like a fish out of water. Inspired by beautiful things and the smell of crayons, markers and glue, no design project is too big (or too small) for Lucy to tackle.

#StandingOut with Dr. Karen Wolfe and Katrina Padron

August 16, 2017

Dr Karen Wolfe went to medical school at the age of 18 in Sydney, Australia and completed a Master’s Degree in Counseling at National University in Irvine. She was discontent with the approach of western medicine, so she has worked in the area of preventive medicine for the past 25 years.

 

Dr Karen began a new mid-life career in wellness at 48 and became a published author at 50 and is a popular speaker on the national and international circuit. She has a warm and natural way of speaking, in which she immediately makes the audience feel so comfortable just being in her presence. Her endearing Australian accent leaves her audiences always wanting more. At age 59 she became a certified Woman Business Owner with the Women’s Business Enterprise Council and is actively engaged in that organization. She spoke at their 2017 Forum on “The Healthy Entrepreneur”

 

Those who would rather speak to her privately rather than in a public forum, she stays behind to meet them in person after the event is over and the crowds have dispersed. Meeting people personally, both before and after she speaks, is a big part of what Dr Karen is all about. She loves the engagement with her audiences.

 

Dr. Karen was recognized by the National Wellness Institute in 2016 with a Lifetime Achievement Award for services in the field of wellness and health promotion and her career is dedicated toward a wellness-centered medical model.
