Please join me in welcoming our new Managing Director of Health In Harmony, Michelle Bussard, who brings over 20 years of experience managing leadership, conservation and community development organizations. Here are some highlights from conversations with her references: amazing leader, incredible integrity, stunningly organized, fabulous public speaker, kindest person I have ever known, passionate, willing to make hard decisions with compassion and grace. In just a few weeks of having the privilege of working with her, I fully agree and know we are so lucky to have her. We are building our team to get ready to take our model of combining human and environmental health to the next level!

Best wishes from ASRI,

Kinari Webb, MD

Indeed, it is an honor to have been invited to lead the Health in Harmony team with Founder and President, Kinari Webb, MD. As I begin this journey, I do so with mindfulness and my own deep commitment to building a better world in which conservation, compassion, community, wisdom, communication, and inspiration are our North stars.

In late February, I joined USA Health in Harmony staff leaders - Nichol Simpson, Development Director and Antonia Gorog, Ph.D., Program Director - for a 10 day site visit to ASRI.  In Sukadana, we  learned from and celebrated ASRI’s successes with the amazing 83 staff and volunteer team led by Health In Harmony Founder and President, and ASRI Co-Founder, Kinari Webb, MD. This was a truly life-changing experience. Watch for the March 2012 newsletter for our stories from Sukadana and ASRI.  In the meantime, check us out on Facebook!

All my best,

Michelle Bussard, Managing Director
