ABOUT - BIO

Shawna Lee Coronado is the author of the critically acclaimed book, Gardening Nude, which
is a guide for living a green lifestyle. She is the CEO of MAD 4 World Enterprises, on-camera
spokesperson, video producer, newspaper columnist, energetic speaker, and environmental
and health correspondent with over eighteen years of experience with sales, marketing, and
public relations.

Building community and educating others on how to do so have become Shawna's driving
passion since she experienced a dramatic life transformation. After suffering for many years
with severe stress and illness which included non-stop allergies, mind-numbing migraine
headaches, and year-long bronchitis bouts, Shawna took command of her lifestyle. She
downsized, built her own company, and started her life over from scratch; ignoring
conventional wisdom and creating her own greener way of living and conducting business
which has led her to the garden as a healing source of health.

Shawna speaks internationally on building community, simple living, and green lifestyle tips
for the everyday person. She speaks on social media development as well as green living
and in 2010 she traveled to Mexico and Ireland as well as across the United States delivering
her inspiring messages.

Social media is an important part of Shawna’s marketing approach. Annually her websites
and YouTube channel receives hundreds of thousands of views. Currently, Shawna has
followers in over 20 countries who watch her YouTube channel and read her two blogs. Her
green lifestyle blog, "Gardening Nude", is on ChicagoNow.com (a division of the Chicago
Tribune) -
www.gardeningnude.com. Her other well-read blog "The Casual Gardener" is
based on her original newspaper column, and is devoted exclusively to sustainable
gardening and home garden products -
thecasualgardener.blogspot.com.

Shawna Coronado educates the online community on eco-travel, green-living tips,
sustainable gardening, inexpensive cooking, home vegetable production, and techniques for
every day homeowners to save money by being green and feed the hungry during a down-
economy. Her goal with the blogs and online presence is to better the world through
community involvement and simple green living. You can find Shawna staying healthy by
working regularly in her garden with her children in the western suburbs of Chicago.
