I’ve spent the past year thinking a lot about “wellth” — the idea that success is found in a lifestyle devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. (I even wrote a book about it.) In this new series, we’re celebrating visionaries who embody what it means to be wellthy. 

Caroline Burckle is an Olympic bronze medalist and one of the most kind and supportive people we know in the mbg community. After finally meeting her in person at our 2015 revitalize event we fell in love with her even more! She's now working with fellow Olympic medal winner Rebecca Soni to help young athletes activate their minds with RISE.
