After a first career in the fast-paced corporate world, Marie-Josée Shaar made it her mission to reverse the current epidemics of sleep deprivation, obesity, depression, and physical inactivity.

They divide their time between homes in Philadelphia and Montreal.

Kathryn Britton, MAPP, is the Associate Editor of Positive Psychology News Daily. A professional coach, she has authored more than 70 articles and edited 2 books on applications of positive psychology to daily life. As a former software engineer, Kathryn is detail-oriented, yet creative and visionary at the same time.

They nourish their flame with ballroom dancing, hiking, reading aloud about science, and finding new ways to cook vegetables.
