"Hearing is how we touch

at a distance."

Mindful Mornings is a monthly speaker series, which means we have the joy of giving a mic and an audience to social good storytellers across the country.

Meet, Becky Crump.

  • Mindful Mornings Founder

  • Engagement Consultant

  • Integrative Nutritionist

  • Mother of Five

  • #dogooder

Becky is a compassionate and courageous instigator of change within organizations (both formal and informal) that seek to help. She believes the collective wields priceless power when activated by impassioned stories that move us all along a continuum from inspiration, to explanation, to actions that give to the world by giving to one another.

 

Becky is Mindful Mornings' Founder, and the creator and lead advisor of Well Work, Mindful Mornings is an interactive monthly speaker series for do-gooders who want to create a more well world that has a growing national presence. Well Work is a communications strategy, program design, and community engagement consultancy that brings capacity, perspective, curiosity, kindness and conviction to the teams who need it the most. 

Becky is driven by the belief that we never arrive, we only iteratively evolve through an interplay between deep attention to one another and gutsy effort.

By attending to one another, finding comfort in confusion and complexity, and taking inspired action driven by more than selfish pursuits, we can disperse the fog that inhibits us from answering our greatest quetion, "What's mine to do?"
