TRAVEL

Stop Talking About It. Just Go: Peru

Whenever I talk to clients about destinations that are on their “wish lists,” Peru inevitably comes up. Indeed, this is an intriguing country that should be on everyone’s short list. From the Peruvian Amazon in the northeast (which is home to the densest population of ocelots in the world) to Colca Canyon in the south (deeper than our Grand Canyon), with the imposing Andes dominating much of the interior and the Pacific coast to the west, this is a country of diverse landscapes, a rich Inca Empire history, and a fascinating modern-day culture that thrives on traditions of the past.

The Turning Pointe: A Young Dancer’s Dream Comes True

When Isabella Long’s friends strapped on their backpacks and headed through the doors of Greenwich High School this fall, she wasn’t among the freshman class. Instead, Isabella was tying up the satin ribbons on her pink pointe shoes and preparing for a 40-hour week of intensive ballet training in New York City. “My dream is to become a principal dancer in one of the world’s largest and most prestigious companies,” says Isabella.

Why Choose Weights?

Let me begin this article proclaiming that I am without a doubt a cardio addict. I crave that endorphin high every day! If I could run and run for miles, I would. But what kind of fitness influencer and enthusiast would I be if I did not do the proper research and confirm what really makes a strong and healthy body? Read More…

YWCA 100 Anniversary

It’s a momentous year at the Greenwich YWCA. Celebrating 100 years of making a difference in the lives of women, children and families. Taking a lead in promoting social justice. Visibly advocating for the elimination of racism. Empowering women and turning the tide on domestic and sexual abuse—way before the #metoo movement. It’s a full plate that’s growing even larger. It’s no wonder that the YWCA is recognized as the soul of the community. Read More…

Love and Money: Why Communicating Values Matters

What is the most important factor driving the long-term success of wealthy families? It is not prudent investment advice or good estate planning, or even risk management. In a word, it is communication. Seventy percent of wealthy families lose control of their wealth by the second generation, and 90% do so by the third generation, primarily due to lack of communication and trust in the family.

YMCA Early Learning Center, Greenwich: A Good Start for 30 Years

As it celebrates its 30th anniversary, this stalwart beacon in the community — fondly known as the ELC – can be depended upon to meet the evolving needs of Greenwich families. For countless children, this is where they receive a remarkable start. Read More…

Cristina Young, LCSW Parenting Specialist with a Positive Passion

It’s often said among teachers and pediatricians, “I love the kids, but the parents!” That’s not the case for Cristina Young, LCSW, a therapist who left a teaching career, so she could work exclusively with parents. Read More…

All That Jazz: Rose Moye’s passion inspires GCDS students

Eight years ago, Rose Moye was surprised to get a call from Greenwich Country Day School Headmaster Adam Rohdie. Although she often helped choreograph theatrical productions at GCDS – where her daughter, Memphis, was a student — she had no idea why he wanted to see her. Read More…

Center Stage: Kate Truesdell’s Studio Soars to Success

The Greenwich native admits that juggling a fast-growing company with her fast-growing young family has made for a wild ride. Read More…

LOOK Health and Fitness – Greenwich Jiu Jitsu Academy

Faces of Philanthropy – Hillary Carter

There are two philanthropic causes that are near and dear to my heart: Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) and Children of Fallen Patriots.  When our two children were both diagnosed with multiple, life-threatening food allergies, I knew this would be my life’s work.  Food allergies affect 15 million Americans, including 5.9 million children under the age of 18.  That’s 1 in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom.

There, bodies are contoured, outlooks refreshed, lives changed. But now there’s no need to traverse I95. Dr. Sharon Giese, a board-certified plastic surgeon and body sculpting specialist, just opened Olympian™ at 45 East Putnam Avenue read more…
