To evolve the wellness industry, we need leaders in positions of influence who not only see the need for change but balance it with the positives aspects of our profession. One of those leaders is today’s guest, Marissa Kalkman, Executive Director of the Wellness Council of Wisconsin (WCWI). Marissa leads with the mindset that holistic employee wellbeing is good for the organization and the people, and it’s the right thing to do.

As Executive Director, she leads WCWI to support 700 professionals from over 500 member organizations of all industries and sizes across the state, in developing and sustaining results-oriented strategies to impact employee wellbeing.

In this interview, we learn about what WCWI does, Marissa’s wellness experience pre-WCWI and her wellness philosophy. We also talk about the wellness industry as a whole, Marissa leaves us with a tangible tip, and we discuss their upcoming conference. Not only are there excellent speakers at this year’s conference but I’ll be leading this year’s Pre-conference session at WCWI. You can find out more here.
