CREATOR - EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
Beth is the Creator of Women Empowerment Media, a video streaming network focused on solutions to help women stand in their power while dealing with challenges through shows that focus on self empowerment, offering answers, key resources and a sisterhood for emotional support.
She lost her power during periods of tragedy and traumas from the death of her twin brother, the impact of domestic violence and her struggles to get back up and out of hiding.
Helping Leaders succeed is her life’s work.
As a Direct Response Television Media Buyer and creator of the Cableblitz, her team placed more than 33 million cable TV spots for over a hundred campaigns for Leader’s promoting their many new products and companies, including top brands such as Netflix, ProActiv, Direct Buy and others through their agencies.
Her publicity and PR work for Activists and Changemakers has been a big part of her life including her work with Mitch Snyder’s housing for the homeless, empowering single moms, peace projects, AID to Farmers with Willie Nelson, and stopping the AIDS pandemic - where my strategy of building a coalition of leaders led to the launch of the Global AIDS Alliance, which engaged President Bush, led to the passage of legislation and supported the worldwide movement to end the AIDS pandemic in Africa.
She believes in empowering Leaders to make change possible!

Television Producer Consultant
Worked initially as a broadcast journalist and transitioned into unscripted network programming on such shows as ‘Survivor’ (CBS), ‘The Restaurant (NBC), ‘Eco-Challenge’ (USA) and subsequently received four Emmy nominations and won a Primetime Emmy Award and People’s Choice Award.
Among the most notable projects are my producing and directing efforts on PBS’s ‘The Royal Tour’ specials hosted by sitting Heads-of-State -- King Abdullah II of Jordan, President Felipe Calderon of Mexico, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, President Rafael Correa of Ecuador and President Paul Kagame of Rwanda as they take viewers and CBS Travel Editor Peter Greenberg on a whirlwind tour of their countries.
Jon is a writer first and foremost. He has worked in the creation of media content for 30 years, much of that time as a producer/showrunner for TV and movies, and he continues to be active in those platforms while expanding into the creation of digital series and VR games.
He’s run successful series in Canada and America, including the iconic Rugrats animated series, and his work has won or been nominated for Emmy, Humanitas, Gemini, Leo, and Cable Ace awards.
But he’s also an activist focused on systemic solutions to Overshoot, driven by overpopulation and consumption in the developed world, a pursuit that grew out of making the award-winning comedic documentary How to Boil a Frog, in which he acted as writer, director, producer, and court jester.
That led Jon into producing, writing, and consulting on TV series and feature films exploring the environmental, energy, economic, and emotional issues raised in How to Boil a Frog, and finding ways to use conventional and digital media to move Humanity towards a better outcome than is currently the default.
His focus is telling stories of how humanity can save the world, through both the written word and content creation. And with an Economics degree from Stanford, he is also well-versed in hard data and economics relating to overshoot and carbon drawdown.
