What the Community is saying about GDV
Ceci Zak recently interviewed me on an episode of Good Day Vail: the knitting episode.
I wanted to let you know she made us feel very comfortable, prepared us really well, and made the whole experience easy, informative, and fun.
Thanks very much for having me on the show and spreading the word about community.
I watched your video. I wanted to share something that might be unexpected about why I’m so happy to have seen that. My very good friend was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s she is young (under 50) and it’s terrifying. Your reference to your rheumatologist gave me a clue to look up Parkinson’s and knitting! And lo and behold there it was. I’ve been looking for a way to help her both with tremors but also refocus energy.
Meet your host, Ceci Zak
Hi! As a transplant from the North East (CT, NJ and NYC), I am thrilled to be living in the Vail Valley, a dream of mine since I was a kid. I have recently planted my roots here for the next phase of my life and have had a blast learning the “ins and outs” of this community, enhancing old passions and learning about new ones that I didn’t know existed. Helping me live an authentic life and I want to share these learnings with you, so that you can thrive in the mountains!
I have had a very active and adventurous life thus far, whereby I've held Senior Global Executive positions within pharmaceuticals (Roche, Sanofi) and advertising (Omnicom), was an Adjunct Professor at Columbia Business School, as well as started and ran a few international non-profits, jumped out of an airplane, floated on the Amazon River and was a National Equestrian Champion in my teens. I am so grateful for all that I have accomplished! But I never seemed to establish “my place” – a place whereby I can unwind, breathe and enjoy the beauty that mother nature has to offer and become part of a community with likeminded people. So, in 2018, I realized it was time to make a change and leave my high powered, high stressed and highly complex job because I wasn’t living a life true to who I am - so change it was! I moved to Europe from NYC, with my dog Ruti, for a period of time to decompress, and returned to the States to teach skiing - and never left Colorado. Seems like the opposite of many of the younger generations, who move to the mountains right after school and never leave – but I am not one to do things conventionally! And from what I have observed (and has been documented!), it seems like there are more and more of “me” out there, individuals and families, of my generation, spending more time in the Valley, looking to thrive in an absolutely awesome environment. So, lets learn from each other and create new dreams!
I hope you enjoy the show and look forward to hearing what your passions are in the Valley!
