In 2013, after years of sharing information and insights through classes, workshops, retreats, email and word of mouth, Lourdes created Illumine Chicago, a print and digital resource for Chicago’s wellness-minded community. She is an advocate for businesses that are mission-driven.
Lourdes’ vision for Illumine is to be both inspirational and educational, simultaneously enriching and actionable, connecting the public with businesses that help others grow and succeed in every part of life, and contributing to a healthier community and a more vibrant world.
Illumine Magazine has since evolved, recognized as Chicago’s premier health and wellness publication, and includes a dynamic and growing online community. In 2018, the first illumine Life Directory was printed, and is known as THE trusted resource for discovering wellness-minded businesses in the Chicagoland area.
