Jill Keb (Vegan Gal) & Team
A personal passion for over 22 years
Jill Keb has embraced a vegetarian since 1998. After receiving her B.S. in psychology, Keb became a certified food educator through the Food Studies Institute in N. Y. In 2005, Keb wrote and produced an eighty minute DVD; Change Your Food, Change Your Life and launched this website VeganGal.com.
In 2008 Jill became a Food For Life Instructor with PCRM. A Washington D.C. non-for-profit, The Physician’s Committee serves up life-changing classes on over 56 topics including; Weight-Loss, prevention of Cancer, Heart Disease and Diabetes all over the world. www.PCRM.org.
For many years Jill’s Walk On The Beach (WOTB) weekend Retreats in South Haven, Michigan have been life-changing, hands on, intimate events for hundreds of Wowed guests. After the decision at 32 to eschew animals products, recipe development has been a JOY. Seasonings (and taste bud adjustments) are the key to tasty food, and there is such excitement to explore in the vast, expansive world of plant foods!
Happily married to Greg, Jill also enjoys being a ‘Guma’ to her munchkin Samantha and actively appreciates opportunities to bond with her 3 adult children. Faith, (Healthy) Food, People and then everything else, is how she strives to prioritize her life.
A Food & Faith Solution is part of my journey…
Kathy Taylor served as Director of HR and Vice President of The Facts Media for 28 years. Her journey to a healthy vegan diet and a whole food, plant-based lifestyle started after attending Jill’s Lunch and Learn series for company employees in 2002, followed by reading Food for Life, by Dr. Neal Barnard and viewing Jill’s DVD video Change Your Food, Change Your Life.
Jill and Kathy enjoyed many years working together and sharing lunches before teaming up to serve and support others on a personal health journey. We are excited to join together to offer small group, casual, hands-on cooking retreats with a mission to provide the information and support to those who desire to live healthier and more vibrant lives, making the journey a little easier along the way.
Kathy enjoys cooking nutrient dense, delicious meals for her husband and two teenagers, because this powerful contribution to the health of her family is an expression of love. Currently, she also serves on the board of Generation Distinct, a non-profit that equips young leaders to discover the wrong they were born to make right and live a life that truly matters.
