  • Meals that Heal
    As a high school student, Freddi Pakier's favorite breakfast item was a candy bar. However, as the school days dragged on, her sugar highs inevitably gave way to lethargy and mood swings. She didn't realize the correlation until she was in her 20s, which caused her to completely change her diet—a change that she credits with giving her an abundance of energy and a more positive outlook. Freddi now shares her story and tips as a health coach at Meals that Heal, introducing students to holistic techniques and the tactics of nutritional science so that they can craft healthful dishes on their own. Her recipes also mesh well with weight-loss plans, helping clients to shed pounds without counting calories or removing their solid gold shoes. Students can choose from a variety of class options that highlight diverse topics such as travel meals, vegetarian nutrition, detoxifying internals, preventing disease, and strengthening bones. All sessions are safe for those avoiding gluten.

  • Fire & Mud Studios
    Artist Rae Holton sees energy. The owner of Fire & Mud Studios and lifelong arts and nature enthusiast harnesses her inimitable sight of what she calls "the vein-like serpentine flow of atoms" to create offbeat works of art in a variety of mediums. Raised among artists and craftspeople, Holton has dabbled in jewelry making, photography, cooking, and ceramics, and cultivated a love for teaching after stints as a children's ski instructor and after-school program educator. Helming her pottery-focused studio, Holton helps others unleash their inner artists through classes and workshops as students learn the history of ceramics or how to remove the head off a classical sculpture with a hedge trimmer.
