Founder & Senior Facilitator
Born in Toronto, Theo was the cofounder and VP of Super Pharm Israel Ltd., Israel’s largest pharmacy chain. When a personal health crisis prompted a change of focus, she turned away from her corporate career to start Mindfulness Without Borders. A published author, educator and advocate for mental health, Theo has collaborated with leading-edge thinkers in the fields of social emotional learning and mindfulness-based education to develop programs that equip individuals with the tools and practices they need to flourish. Since 2009, she has facilitated programs in education, healthcare and corporate settings around the world. A social activist and public speaker, Theo has served on several boards and advisory committees, including those for The Mindful Society Global Institute, The Goldie Hawn Foundation, Students For Canada’s North, The Center for Therapeutic Riding in Israel and the Garrison Institute, where she coauthored the first-ever mapping report on Contemplation and Education in K–12 Educational Settings in the United States.
