The Employee Wellness office is pleased to present its first-ever, fall employee wellness speaker series, Reigniting Your Light. This speaker series features topics imperative to supporting your personal well-being. Topics and guest speakers include the following: 

  • Sept. 26 - Thomas O’Reilly, M.S., PCC, will share his wisdom and expertise on how your circadian rhythm affects your quality of life, not only in your sleeping hours but in your waking hours as well. More importantly, he will teach us how to “dance to the rhythm.” 
  • Oct. 10 - Laurel Greene Kaiser, LISW, will discuss the role of resiliency in all aspects of life and how we can become more resilient at any age. Kaiser also will share how improved resiliency helps one to develop greater optimism, confidence and motivation. 
  • Oct. 17 - Billie Gilliam, LPCC, LICDC, will share how biological and environmental influences affect our emotional health. It is these integrated influences that we must learn to appreciate in order to enhance our emotional well-being.

All full- and part-time employees are welcome to take advantage of the entire three-part series. However, if this is not possible, please plan to attend any session that your schedule may permit. Time has been built into each session so that attendees will have an opportunity to ask the presenters questions. Registration is required.

Note: For full-time, benefits-eligible employees participating in the Wellness Your Way program, each session will be worth 20 points for a total of 60 points for the Reigniting Your Light speaker series.
