As a full-time food activist and vegan for over 10 years, Marisa Miller Wolfson has organized roughly 70 grassroots workshops and screenings of award-winning documentaries about healthy, humane, eco-friendly eating all across North America.
Inspired by the stories of personal transformation she was witnessing, she decided to recreate this eye-opening journey on camera by taking three people from different backgrounds who agree to go vegan for six weeks and track their progress on tape. It became her first film, Vegucated, and it world premiered at the Toronto Independent Film Festival last September, where it received the best documentary award. It has since gone on to screen at six more film festivals, win more awards, screen in over 100 cities around the world, and become a digital bestseller. Meanwhile, since 2008 she has enjoyed vegucating the 2,500+ members of her free online coaching program Vegan at Heart, which was featured on Oprah.com. Marisa is also the honored recipient of a Farm Sanctuary Farm Animal Friend Award.
As a recent college grad looking to lose a few pounds, Danielle Elliot snagged a copy of Skinny Bitch back in 2008. Going vegan had never seemed feasible or realistic, but after flying through the book, she’s never looked back.
By day, she’s an independent film and features producer who has covered the Olympics with NBC, four U.S. Open Championships and countless other sporting events. She first starting spreading the vegan love with a weekly health and wellness column for AOL, which soon morphed into a vegan dining column. She’s currently working on her first feature-length film, Pushing PB, which explores the many athletic-performance benefits of adopting a plant-based diet.
Ashlee Piper hails from the cattle country of Plano, Texas. As a girl, she loved meat so much, she even had her high school graduation party at Fogo de Chao, where she proceeded to eat about 45 different creatures in one sitting (it wasn’t pretty).
It wasn’t until she became involved with animal rescue and adopted her magical dog, Banjo, that she made the enduring and electric connection that all animals are sentient, and went vegetarian and later vegan. The transition was so joyful, exciting, and foxy-fying that she decided to hit the books (again, mid-career) to study nutrition and became an AADP-certified holistic health counselor.
By day, she directs strategy for a government consulting firm, and owns All Is Wellness, a boutique health counseling and yoga consultancy. She also spreads tips and tricks of cruelty-free living via her mischievous blog, The Little Foxes. Have a question about where to find non-animal tested mascara or the best recipes for tempeh? Ashlee’s on it, and will be moderating the community site to ensure all of your most challenging veg quandaries are resolved.
