Industry legend Deborah Szekely, who celebrated her 101st birthday in May, recently joined fellow wellness leader Susie Ellis in a special Global Wellness Conversations podcast.
Both women have played key roles in building the modern wellness movement.
Deborah Szekely, considered by many to be the founder of the modern fitness resort and spa movement, is often called the godmother of the mind, body and fitness.
Together with her late husband, Edmond, Szekely founded Ranch La Puerta in Tecate Mexico in 1940. It was the first fitness resort in America with a focus on living simply.
She then created the award-winning destination spa in California, Golden Door.
