CFA Advisory Team Spotlight: Kathryn Guylay

Kathryn Guylay is the Executive Director of Nurture and author of the upcoming book The Smile Advantage: How to succeed in work, life and health, even when you’re headed for the cliff. Kathryn is a radio talk show host on KDPI 89.1 Ketchum where she shares inspiration and ideas for the health and wellness of children and families.

Kathryn and her family moved to the valley in 2011 to be closer to nature and to leave the “life in the fast lane” of Metro Chicago. Her family is still in awe every day by the beautiful mountain views, and they all exclaim every day how wonderful the air smells here!

Kathryn wanted to be a part of the Community Food Assessment (CFA) because our valley has a unique opportunity to create a huge change because we are so small yet so full of amazing people. Why does she think the CFA is important? “Food is important, our earth is important, all the living creatures of this planet are important,” said Kathryn. “We are all interconnected,” smiled Kathryn.
