I’m Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author, speaker, podcast producer, video host, and self-proclaimed joyful vegan. My passion is compassion, and I'm dedicated to:

  • empowering people to live according to their own values of compassion and wellness
  • changing how we regard and treat animals
  • inspiring people to be the best they can be: the healthiest, most joyful, most articulate ambassadors of compassion possible.

I do this through my books, podcast, videos, blogs, and photos, and I look forward to connecting with you in all these mediums. Welcome to the journey!

This Week's Featured Content

When you tell people you’re vegan, often the question that follows is: “Are you vegan for health or ethics?” and depending on your answer, people may respond differently. I discuss what the difference is, if it matters, and what to do about it in this week's video. Watch Part One here.
