Monika Guendner

Senior Project Manager & Volunteer Wrangler

Monika came on board with KPCW in 2011 as a sales associate in Underwriting and Fundraising, but that was after nine years as a volunteer DJ, and most of them as a co-host of the KPCW Classifieds Show. Her background includes everything from running ELIZAS in an immunology lab to waiting tables to writing for newspapers and magazines. Her real passion is creating memes for her volunteers,enticing them into covering shifts so she doesn't have to.

The Summit County Health Department has created a 'Mental Health and Substance Abuse Needs Assessment' survey for County residents.  The survey's goal is to identify potential gaps and barriers to mental health services in Summit County. Based on those answers, the Health Department will develop a plan to better meet community needs.

Host John Wells disappears this week with Spring Fever, and KPCW deejays Shirin Spangenberg and Monika Guendner step in to dispel the rumors that there's nothing to do in town after the resorts close. Park City Historic District's Alison Kuhlow stops by to give an update on everything that's new and open during the spring, as well as tips on how to get free parking on Main Street. In between all the shoulder season news, local artists from past shows round this out for the Best of The Morning Mix, with performances by Shannon Runyon, Elizabeth Hareza and Teresa Eggertsen Cook.

  Today on the program Tim and Monika speak with participants from Running with Ed.  This community event raises thousands of dollars for local education.

The second guest is Sheri Fisher from Tadasana Yoga in Park City talking about the 40-Days to Personal Revolution Program.

Finally Tim visits with Adam Shell, the director of Pursuing Happiness; a documentary film that he says is full of pleasant surprises.
