    Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights Dr. Corinna Murray of Veterinary Care Navigation

    in Pets

    Johns Creek, GA – Our pets possess a strong willingness and desire to understand our needs and anticipate them. As a result, there is so much more the relationship with our pets can bring into our lives in terms of our personal development and sense of well being. When we foster a deeper bond with our pets, we open up a whole new dimension of emotional health and wellness, as well as create the opportunity for getting the behaviors that we want from our pets and from ourselves.


    Dr. Corinna Murray is a Certified Professional Life and Leadership Coach and the founder of Veterinary Care Navigation and EnHABiT (Engaging the Human Animal Bond in Tandem). Dr. Murray brings 25 years of veterinary experience to her unique, groundbreaking coaching services dedicated to enhancing the quality of the bonds between pets and their owners.


    “I’ve always been very connected with animals,” says Dr. Murray. “I practiced traditional veterinary medicine, but what I found most fulfilling was my ability to connect with people facing challenging decisions. I was able to listen to them and help them come to the right decision for them.”


    With Veterinary Care Navigation, Dr. Murray helps clients manage the difficult emotional decisions related to their pets. With EnHABiT, Dr. Murray teaches her clients how to use the bond with their pets to better manage their stress and accelerate their personal development while getting the behaviors and emotional satisfaction that they want from both themselves and their pets.


    “People are amazed to learn that the behaviors that they want to change in their pets really starts with themselves," says Dr. Murray. "When you can better manage your energies, you will see the behavioral change in your pet and that change will spark change in you. Once you see it, you can’t deny it."

    Private Exchanges and Pet Insurance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing private health insurance exchanges, pet insurance and more with special guests from Accenture and Hartville Pet Insurance Group.


    For the first segment on today's program, Scott Brown, Private Exchange Offering Lead at Accenture, will be joining the program to discuss the firm's latest private exchange research. Accenture estimates enrollment in private health insurance exchanges doubled to six million individuals for the 2015 plan year. The company projects hypergrowth will continue through 2018, as a number of factors inhibiting early growth will dissipate, while several accelerators will spur further adoption. These factors, combined with the employer’s desire to meet consumers’ demand for choice and flexibility in a retail-like shopping experience, will lead to 40 million members on private exchanges by 2018.


    The second guest on this week's program will be JoAnne Novak, AVP Business Development at Hartville Pet Insurance Group, providers of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.  As one of the oldest and largest pet insurance providers in the U.S., Hartville has committed itself to helping more pet parents have access to reliable and affordable pet insurance plans. According to the American Pet Products Association, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households have a pet, and last year, over $15 billion was spent on veterinary care. In this segment, JoAnne will discuss what’s driving the increasing demand for pet health insurance as a voluntary benefit as well as what makes pet insurance relevant for the workforce in connection with health care consumerism and private exchanges.

    Casey Ward- Mike Pettit- Kevin Pyramids on Mars

    in Entertainment

    Welcome to the show...Hammer is giving you a double-shot of greatness you won't want to miss...


    Indie-Author and Publisher Mike Pettit is a best-seller of over twenty novels to his credit. He spent many years in little known back-water ports around Asia and the Caribbean, learning and applying the rules of international duplicity, double dealing and knowing when to run. Believe only half of what you see, and nothing of what you are told; survival goes in the plus column. At home on Florida’s emerald Coast, Mike spends his time writing Mystery Suspense and Thriller novels. Stories of lost honor, stolen money, danger coming at you like a tracer round; where the good guy doesn’t always win, and the bad guy isn’t always who you think it is.


    Casey Ward (entrepreneur and business owner) has always loved to write. Her stories are reflective of her careers in the diverse fields of Antiques, Veterinary Medicine, and the Fashion Industry. Her knowledge and experience of these areas, provide a constant stream of ideas to build her stories around. Casey has lived on both Coasts and in Hawaii for several years, but her Midwestern roots drew her back to the Kansas City area to live and raise her family.


    "Pyramids on Mars is the embodiment of who I am, really. My musical influences, my philosophies on life, the universe and our place in it." Kevin went on to say, “I have always been attracted to space, and a lot of my sound is influenced from my childhood growing up in the '70's. Some of my favorite TV shows back then were Star Trek and Space: 1999. Plus I am a huge Rush and Pink Floyd fan! Thus I use a lot of analog synthesizers like the Minimoog and Oberheim Polyphonic. Predominant of the '70's era and used exclusively by those bands. They are just so warm and mysterious sounding, they resonate with me."
