Todd Whitthorne’s unique combination of experience, education, and passion for life, has led many to describe him as, "The Ted Lasso of Wellness!"
Todd’s other descriptors include speaker, author, investor, advisor, and mentor.
Leveraging an educational background in exercise physiology, two decades as an Emmy award-winning broadcaster, and emersion within the ever-changing corporate wellness environment, Whitthorne’s message has motivated thousands of individuals to take charge of their personal health, and…to positively impact the communities they serve.
After graduating, with honors from UCLA, Todd worked as a television reporter, anchor and host in several top-20 markets including Phoenix, Washington, D.C., and Dallas/Ft. Worth.
For eight years, he produced and hosted “Healthy Living,”…a nationally syndicated radio program…while also serving as a senior executive at The Cooper Aerobics Center…considered by many to be the “Mecca of Preventive Medicine and Lifestyle.”
Since 2000, Todd has combined his experience in population health, along with a deep understanding of employee benefits, to help develop solutions which have measurably improved the lives of over one million Americans.
