Tabita Green is an author, speaker, content strategist, and community organizer. In 2011, she left her high-powered corporate job to focus on family, health, and community building. After three years of research into mental health and resilience for her book, Her Lost Year, she believes humanity’s future health and happiness depends on the creation of resilient, sustainable communities and a society focused on equality, justice, and dignity for all people.
Tabita discovered blogs over a decade ago and has been blogging ever since. Her blog at tabitagreen.com inspires readers to take action for personal wellness, social justice, and a sustainable future. She has also written guest posts for blogs such as Mad in America, Center for a New American Dream, and Search Engine Journal.
Tabita is an engaging speaker and offers presentations on topics ranging from mental health optimization to simple productivity. She has presented at the National Wellness Conference, offers workshops on time management and health, and is a guest lecturer at Luther College on several different subjects, including mindfulness in education.
Following her passion for transitioning to a new economy—designed for people and the planet—Tabita co-founded a worker cooperative, New Digital Cooperative, with colleague Nathan Dirks. They help mission-driven organizations & businesses make an impact on the web.
A native of Sweden, Tabita currently enjoys small-town living in Decorah, Iowa, with husband Todd, daughter Rebecka, and (spoiled) dog Sophie. In her spare time, Tabita likes to run around in the woods, read, sing, and teach Swedish.
