Shawna Coronado is an author, columnist, blogger, photographer, media host, and brand ambassador who campaigns for social good in the realms of green living, organic gardening, and low-cost cuisine. She is also an on-camera spokesperson and social media personality with more than 375,000 followers on her various social media venues, and she maintains a YouTube channel with more than a million views. In 2015 she co-hosted the radio show “The Good Green Home Show” and appeared bi-weekly at her home garden as the FOX News Chicago “Gardening with Good Day” organic gardening expert. Coronado’s garden and eco-adventures have been featured in many media venues, including PBS television. Along with her green lifestyle initiatives, Coronado is concerned about promoting and teaching healthy living. She was diagnosed with severe spinal osteoarthritis, a diagnosis that has led her to change her lifestyle, lose weight, and consume a mostly anti-inflammatory diet. She educates audiences about beneficial diet, food, and health practices through her organic living media. She dreams that this will enable more people who suffer from similar conditions to be active. Her successful organic living photographs and stories have been shown both online and off in many international home and garden magazines and multiple books.

Hannah Kincaid runs Herbal Cottage Content, helping herbalists navigate the technology they need to market their wares. She spends her spare time studying and growing native medicinal plants, maintaining a large heirloom vegetable and cut-flower garden, and practicing yoga. Hannah prefers craft beer over wine, Steinbeck over Hemingway, and sunflowers over roses.
