While the at-home fitness market has exploded with spin bikes, workout videos, and more, Weston mom, Julie Wald, and her husband were ahead of the curve when they launched Namaste New York, an in-home fitness and wellness business 17 years ago! Namaste matches you with the best in class practitioners in health and wellness for private in-home sessions (think massages, nutrition, personal training!). Outside of work, Julie loves weekend hikes with her 3 kids, particularly at Devil’s Den, family trips (most recently to Portugal and Spain), and in another life might have been a psycho-therapist. Julie’s work keeps her grounded and in the moment, and there is no question that in this crazy world we live in, all of us could benefit from a little Namaste!

Meet Jenn! While some know Jenn as a local blogger with that “keep-you-guessing” hair style who is often sharing her favorite summer swimsuits or colors for fall on Facebook or her website – jennfalik.com – she is also a Westport Native and mom of two girls who like so many of us, is constantly trying to stay afloat in this crazy world of Motherhood. After years in PR, Jenn began creating on-air segments for national TV shows like Today, The View, E! News and more, and while she does It still, she loves being back in Westport, and living across the street from her childhood best friend! Jenn loves summer mornings at Elvira’s, is a major musical theatre geek (self-described!), and prides herself on keeping It real. Thank you Jenn for not being afraid to write, think, dress or live outside the box – and for putting down in words things so many of us are thinking, but don’t know how to express!
