Join me as I interview Peggy Malecki, Owner and Publisher of Natural Awakenings Chicago,  a monthly magazine and website with cutting-edge info related to healthy and sustainable living for you and your family and pets.


Peggy will discuss her path to publishing her own magazine, the mission in publishing Natural Awakenings, and how she got interested in health and sustainability.  She will share what she has learned from publishing and how it applies to your family life.  She will give us advice on how moms can eat a healthier diet, as well as getting your kids and spouses to eat better. 


After graduating with a BSJ in Journalism from Northwestern, Peggy opted to enter the corporate world, working as a technical communicator, training developer and corporate trainer. Her corporate path in the industrial packaging and high tech worlds evolved into marketing communications, web development and product management. Following a layoff she moved in to the custom home building industry, serving as a marketer, field coordinator and office manager, among other responsibilities. In her spare time, she worked on sailing newsletters and websites and published a quarterly sailing magazines. Following two more layoffs, she had enough of corporate life. She had  seen Natural Awakenings in other markets and pursued the franchise opportunity. She interviewed them, they interviewed her, and et voila! She published her first issue in October 2010.
