Have you ever felt yourself “boxed in” by life? Sometimes, the boundaries we believe exist are more perception than reality. This week on the Dr. Lisa Radio Hour we benefit from the perspective of individuals who have gone “outside of the box.” Joining us on Sunday, May 5, are Tom and Lee Ann Szelog, Zachary Theberge, and Dr. Stephen Donnelly.

Dr. Lisa # 86
Passionate advocates for wildlife conservation, Thomas and Lee Ann Szelog use their words—as professional speakers and authors—and Tom’s professional wildlife and nature photographs to educate and stimulate people’s environmental conscious. Their current, most ambitious and
passionate project is the Maine Woods National Park Photo-Documentation Project
which provides inspiration, education, and motivation to encourage society to work together to create the Maine Woods National Park. They have lived in both a lighthouse and a log cabin, where they documented life, both human and wild, in their award-winning book, "Our Point of View: Fourteen Years at a Maine Lighthouse", and "By a Maine River—A Year of Looking Closely". Lee Ann, through her own business, Simply Put, LLC
, also works with companies to provide presentations to help people communicate more effectively, engage more powerfully, and live life rather than react to it.
Stephen Donnelly, DO, is the founder and owner of the Maine Center for
Integrative Medicine here in Portland, where he provides integrative care for pediatric and young adult patients on a consultative basis. He trained in the prestigious Fellowship in Integrative Medicine thru the University of Arizona under the direction of Andrew Weil, MD—arguably the most respected proponent of this approach to healthcare in the U.S. In addition, Dr. Donnelly maintains an active general pediatric practice at Lakes Region Primary Care in Windham, Maine.
Zachary Theberge grew up in Brunswick, wintering on the slopes of Sugarloaf Mountain in Carrabasseett Valley and summering with the Chewonki Foundation at their Wiscassett campus. He attended and graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelors of Science in Environmental with a concentration in Forestry.
In the summer of 2012, Zachary, or Zee, as he is since known, worked as a summer camp counselor at the University of Maine 4-H Camp & Learning Center at Bryant Pond. His passion for the conservation
and appreciation of the natural world are reflected in the thoughtfulness behind each environmental course and activity taught to young campers. He is currently traveling around the US midwest and has goals of completing the Appalachian Trail by end of summer 2014.

Our financial wellness tip of the week is brought to you by Tom Shepard of Shepard Financial: A few years ago we gave a talk called "Raise Your Kids, Raise Yourself, Raise Your Money". In it we
introduced a broader concept of currency. We pointed out how the little things like a smile, giggle, first step—and milestones along the way—make the bad stuff seem worth it. This led us to talk about how our kids learn about money. Done well a child will come to understand that money has value in their lives that transcends our simply forking it over upon request. They will find that value is discovered, shared, made, earned, invested, loaned, and given. Interestingly enough we've found that when we teach this subject to our kids we get to learn it a second time. There are many resources to help you integrate learning about money into raising your kids. To learn more, "like" us on Facebook at Shepard Financial.
Join us next Sunday, May 12, for the next Dr. Lisa Radio Hour & Podcast, "Mother's Day". Sitting down with us will be Sarah Ruef-Lindquist, CEO of Maine Women’s Fund, and Layne Gregory, board president of MWF, Heidi Kirn, art director of Maine Home+Design magazine, and Kim Kalicky, author, mother, and assistant vice president for client service at R.M. Davis.
Enjoy this coming week, and thank you for being a part of our little community. Together we are building a healthier world. Starting right here in Maine.
