WWCMA COVID-19 Resources Page

WWCMA Community,

First and foremost, I hope you and your loved ones are well. The past couple of weeks reminded many of us that health and well-being remain of utmost importance.  We know that some of you are feeling overwhelmed by working remotely, keeping up with nutritious meal planning, changing your exercise routines and trying to find new ways to have fun.  This is a perfect opportunity to engage with the WWCMA community, so we can help each other.  We’re all in this together!

This week, we added a NEW resource page on our website that is available for everyone--members and non-members (see below). It highlights the many valuable COVID-19 resources available from our sponsors as well as a curated list of additional resources to support fitness, nutrition, mental health, family activities and self-care.  

Watch for emails and newsletter articles on virtual programming and networking events during the next few months.  Also, see upcoming events for more information about our April webinar.  As always, members benefit from accessing recordings if they’re unable to attend live.

Thank you for supporting WWCMA.  Please email us at and tell us what you like that we’re doing as well as how we can continue helping you thrive both professionally and personally.

Be well,

Keeping a Remote Workforce Healthy and Engaged

Thursday, April 9 / 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST/ Webinar

The expansion of the remote workforce as a result of social distancing has employers and employees adjusting to a new reality. Employees need more support than ever to stay healthy and engaged as they overcome the interruption to their daily routines. Providing opportunities for workers to stay virtually connected and encouraging healthy behaviors for both body and mind will be key to keeping up morale.

What’s your passion when it comes to wellness?

The first phase of my career was in high-tech. After many sleepless nights myself, I transitioned into the current phase of my career as a health coach. Now, my focus is on helping stressed-out professionals get refreshing sleep and improve their energy in a way that considers their busy lives. My passion is helping people navigate the delicate balance between high productivity and optimal health.

What have been the benefits of your Council involvement?

First, the incredible people I get to meet and interact with all the time. It's encouraging to know there are others with similar missions, and learn about different approaches for workplace and employee wellness. It’s very motivating and rewarding to know that I'm part of a team working to educate and help people who are where I was in terms of stress and burn out as well as helping people avoid potentially serious health crises.
