Community Farm Store

At the heart of Duncan, British Columbia, nestled in a small shopping complex barely a mile from the city’s vibrant downtown, sits The Community Farm Store (CFS). Combining farm-fresh produce, eco-friendly products and a litany of educational resources, the depot epitomizes the region’s back-to-the-earth ethos. You might say it’s all in the name. “The store […]

Dallas Clement – Cox Enterprises

It was 1898—fewer than half of the homes in the Unites States had electricity and the top-of-the-fold news for most citizens was the Spanish American War. It was also the year James Cox purchased the Dayton Daily News, beginning what would eventually become Cox Enterprises. Over the next 120 years, the company would grow from a single […]

Dan Egan – Degan Media

The title to his latest book might sound like something a debauched rock ‘n roller would fess up to: “Thirty Years in a White Haze.” “Not that kind of powder,” Dan Egan emphasizes with a laugh. On the contrary, he’s referring to what can be the fluffy and pristine gift from above or the cause […]

Dawn Jones – Intel

After two years as an administrative assistant and another two years working in Intel’s public relations department, Dawn Jones had proven herself a valuable asset—diligent, dependable and always willing to go the extra mile. So when the single mother of two decided she wanted to finish her degree, she wasn’t quite sure how her boss […]

Debbie Walters-Francique – Pfizer

Douglas DiSanti – Neon Bloom Inc.

Douglas DiSanti has seen firsthand the dramatic impacts of medicinal marijuana. When his grandfather was struggling with a life-threatening disease, the only time he felt relief—and could carry on a substantive conversation—was when he was given cannabis in oil and pill form. Likewise, DiSanti’s mentor and partner Yuri Sernande suffers from chronic Lyme disease, which […]

Eatmore Sprouts and Greens Ltd.

Halfway through her nursing training, back when she still had designs on entering the profession, Carmen Wakeling was called upon to administer to a patient whose daily regimen involved 16 different medications. Oh, if only that man had followed the sound advice of including five servings of fresh vegetables or fruits into his daily diet, […]

Elia Quintana – American Petroleum Institute

Growing up in Arvin, California, a modest town of 21,000 about 100 miles north of Los Angeles, Elia Quintana remembers driving past the hundreds of oil fields that dot the arid hills of nearby Bakersfield, their beams and heads bobbing like giraffes at a waterhole. To her, they were as much a part of the […]

Fine Choice Foods Ltd.

In many cities, they’re as ubiquitous a menu item as burgers or buffalo wings. Stuffed with chicken, pork or vegetables, steamed and pan-fried to crispy-brown perfection, pot stickers have become a bite-sized bellwether for North America’s growing love of Asian cuisine. Fine Choice Foods has played an outsized role in helping spur this trend since […]
