About this Episode

Greetings Glocal Citizens!
Kicking off the midway point between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice--the reason behind the ancient observation of May Day, we have a two-part conversation that likewise offers interesting perspectives on the contemporary observation of May Day - International Workers' Day and the difference that mindset can have on the fruits of one’s labor. My guest for these discussions is Dr. Juleen Christopher. A dual citizen of the United States (by way of the US Virgin Islands) and the British Virgin Islands, in 2018 Juleen firmly reset her roots in the BVI with the purchase of St. Bernard’s Hill House, a 5-star luxury villa experience in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. In her other world, she is the Founder and Inspiration Strategist of Beyond The Fork, a consultancy aimed at helping companies, their leaders and their employees navigate interpersonal challenges and work more effectively as teams.  Since arriving in the mainland US from her native St. Croix, she has become a cognitive-behavioral research scientist because she is passionate about working with tools to help guide and empower individuals to become accountable for their holistic health and well-being through education, understanding, and personal growth. This work has taken her from the American south to the East Coast and now to the midwest where she calls now calls Minneapolis, Minnesota home. There is so much more to get to know about this dynamic Glocal Citizen so be sure to tune in and check out the links below!
