Be Well Madison fosters meaningful connections between wellness practitioners and the communities we serve.
At the core of our work we hold the values of dignity, inclusion, collaboration, integrity, compassion, knowledge and growth.
Formed in 2013 and originally known as the Madison Area Wellness Collective, our goal was to provide a way for private practice physical therapists to connect locally. We quickly grew, though, when there was a desire in the broad wellness fields to join us for support and opportunities for collaboration.
In late 2018 we answered the call to create a more sustainable organization, increasing our capability to respond to wellness requests from our communities and support our members. To that end, we became a 501c3 under the fiscal sponsorship of C4CS, created an advisory board and structure for compensated leadership. In 2020 we officially changed our name to Be Well Madison to better represent both our members and the public in our mission.
We want to honor and express gratitude for the Founders of this collective. Thank you, Anne Forbes, Christine Koth, Doreen Giles, Iris Mickey, Jessica Dufault, Kate Behrens, Katy Wallace, Kristi Hallisy, Megan Bjella, Michele Wensman, Nathan Dufault, Robb Seal, Sara Kresbsbach, Shannon Kunstman, Steve Gloe, and Susan Frikken.
