The Company We Keep
Does This Sound Familiar?
You work really long hours. And you deal with “‘work emergencies” - even in your downtime.
It’s challenging for you to use up your PTO and sick time.
You’re constantly trying to prove your value at work.
You know you need to work out and eat well, but those habits take a backseat. But you also feel guilty for carving out time for rest, exercise, and healthy eating.
You may have tried diets, health programs, and coaches, but nothing worked. You’re lacking accountability to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
You know you’re stuck in poor health habits but you don’t have the time or knowledge to change them. When you have a bad day, even the best of intentions go out the window.
You Need a Chief Well-being Officer!
When the above statements describe you or the people you lead, it’s time for a change. Let’s talk about how I can spark that transformation!
As a PR executive, I understand the immense pressures of a high-flying career. It’s very hard to prioritize your mental and physical well-being when so many people are relying on you.
In my case, a few bad habits quickly ballooned into an extra 150 pounds. I gave myself a second chance at life when I lost that weight (and kept it off!) and now I empower others to do the same.
It IS possible to prioritize your physical and mental well-being without hurting your work performance. My programs shift mindsets and provide actionable tools to help you establish a healthy lifestyle. You’ll learn to rethink your relationship with food, time, and exercise.Get Started

"Mark’s workshop totally revamped the way I thought (and think) about health and reaching those goals, too! And the fact that Mark comes from the PR profession was the icing on the cake! Knowing this about Mark helped me connect with him from the beginning. I would highly recommend Mark for group workshops for anyone in public relations and also to consider him for professional coaching too!"
Leigh Havelick, Managing Director
"Mark, his experience in public relations, specifically an agency background, lent itself so well because he empathized with where we are. He empathized with the challenges we have in making our clients happy and making the people that we love happy, as well as focusing on our own health. He benefited our team in a way that no one else that we've come in to speak has."
Carissa Sauer, APR,

"Mark is a joy to work with and extremely supportive. His 1-on-1 coaching was immensely helpful. As my trusted advisor, he provided coaching as I transitioned into a new area of communications and provided valuable insights as I considered projects outside of work. With regular check-ins and month-long guidance, I received support every step of the way. I highly recommend Mark!"
"Mark shared surprising industry data, inspiring personal anecdotes, and tangible ways PR professionals can put their health first. Mark’s energy was infectious, he was incredibly engaging, and we received nonstop compliments from our members about how well the session resonated with them.”
TEDx speaker and Communications Manager
"With Chasing the Sun, he has truly captured the struggles we communicators face on a daily basis. His grasp on not only the communication industry but health and wellness has made for an invaluable resource. I find it impossible to listen to him and not take away something valuable that you can then include in your everyday life.”
Ann Smith, Founder
"Mark is an incredible resource for professionals working to balance their lives, careers, and health. We all need to be reminded that it’s not just ok, but critical, to put ourselves first so that we can show up most effectively for everyone else around us. Thanks, Mark, for being such a source of motivation and inspiration for us all!”
