Meet Michele Simon, JD, MPH

She has a master’s degree in public health from Yale University and received her law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

Meet John Robbins

John Robbins is connected to the Baskin-Robbins ice cream family and has a riveting story to tell. For ethical reasons, John left his father's fortune at an early age and decided to raise his son, Ocean, in a log cabin, living off the land and engaging in a WPF lifestyle. John's best-selling book, Diet for a New America (1987) influenced my own life. In 2012, John and Ocean co-founded the Food Revolution Network. They continue to empower people, build community, and transform food systems to support healthy humans and a healthy planet. They rock.

Meet Ocean Robbins

Check out an insightful and inspiring presentation by Ocean Robbins. His extensive research, compassion, and focused actions have contributed to speaking truth to powerful corporations and institutions. Ocean's writing is thorough and entertaining, and the Food Revolution Network newsletter subscription is stellar. Through this, I've been connected to various health summits and advocates in the plant-focused world I probably wouldn't have found as easily. His book, 31-Day Food Revolution: Heal Your Body, Feel Great, and Transform Your World (2019), is helping people around the world.
