Letter from Publisher, May 2015

Serving as publisher of Natural Awakenings of Bucks and Montgomery for nearly three years has been an amazing and rewarding experience for which I will always be grateful. Working with you has filled my heart and expanded my mind.

headshotAs with any business venture, a candid evaluation of the current situation points to what’s necessary in order to keep growing. When I reached a point where I saw that in order to take the magazine to greater heights, I also realized that I’d need to accordingly make some big changes in my life.

After assessing what would be best for our community of readers, I decided that it was time to open the door to another passionate and open-minded individual able to lead the charge. I’m pleased to share the good news that with this issue I am passing the torch on to a new publisher, Karen Meshkov, of Wyncote. Please join me in warmly welcoming her.karen meshkov

Many of you have asked about my own future plans. At the moment, I plan to have a fun-filled fantastic summer with my family. Beyond that, I expect to play a different role in the holistic arena because once you’re “awakened”, there’s no turning back.

With your steadfast support, this magazine is now poised to move to the next level of expanded service. Thank you for inviting us into your lives and infusing it with the energy and personality of the Bucks/Montgomery community. Thank you for how well you’ve loved us and for continuing to support Karen as you have me.

To the future—Salut!
