Paul Krause:  President

Paul is also a pharmacist and owner of The Medicine Cabinet pharmacy in Southfield.  “Going vegan is very comprehensive,” he states.  “As a society, we need to start accentuating preventative health care through our food choices.  Furthermore, the planet can’t sustain a meat-eating society much longer. Finally, the evolution of factory farming has lead to the continual imprisonment and torture of animals.”

Jeff Hampton

Jeff Hampton is a graduate mechanical engineer with a minor in environmental science from Michigan State University. His initial interest in the Vegan lifestyle was prompted by his concern of the horrific effects of the Standard American Diet (SAD) on the planet ecosystem.  This concern led to the development of a entertaining and education presentation entitled, “Saving The Earth, One Bite At A Time.”  Jeff is available as a guest presenter.

Sue Miller

For years I have taken a personal and professional interest in health. This drove me to research ways to improve my life and the world around me. Veganism was a natural lifestyle change to achieve both goals. There is growing evidence of the negative effects of animal-based foods. As a nurse and yoga instructor, I can introduce better choices for clients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tom Progar

Eating a plant-based diet has had such a positive impact on my life. Helping move society towards a plant-based lifestyle is important to me because I want people to feel better, be more active, and live longer with less chronic disease.  A plant-based diet also greatly benefits the environment and reduces animal suffering. A real win, win, win!.  I am a graduate of Michigan State University and currently pursuing my Master’s Degree at Eastern Michigan University focused on non-profit management.
