stacy fisher-gunn create your vision self-care conference speaker march 25 2017 kirkland eventStacy Fisher-Gunn, RDN, CD, CDE, CHWC

Stacy has been called the quintessential torchbearer for the self-care movement. The Founder of Living Upp, a self-care community, she was recently featured in the January issue of The Costco Connection magazine proclaiming that self-care is a powerful (and underutilized) preventive health tool. Stacy believes that self-care isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to wellness. It’s personal, and it has to be fun and unusual to keep your attention. You might even call it a divine responsibility– because when you’re at your best, you’re better suited to love and care for others. If you believe that self-care is a right, not a privilege, don’t miss Stacy’s presentation at 1:00.
