Since 2001, Pilar Gerasimo has served as the key visionary and creative mind behind the multiple-award-winning Experience Life magazine. In an era when consumers are bombarded with hype, quick fixes and conflicting messages, Gerasimo and team have applied unwavering focus on empowering readers to become their best, healthiest, most authentic selves.
Recently named Executive Editor of Healthy Living at The Huffington Post, Gerasimo remains closely connected to Experience Life, having been appointed to lead a new board that will lend guidance to the strategic direction of our magazine and its content, as well as the publication’s digital and media extensions.
Since its launch, Experience Life has earned a reputation as one of the most credible, practical and forward-thinking health magazines on the market. It has earned hundreds of awards, including six national FOLIO: awards, and garnered kudos from respected healthy-lifestyle experts like Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Frank Lipman and Queen Rania of Jordan. It also earned a coveted place on Barnes & Noble and other select newsstands.
Today, Experience Life enjoys a large, enthusiastic fan base and a robust multimedia Web presence (ExperienceLife.com). It also powers a dynamic health-advocacy initiative, RevolutionaryAct.com, which was conceived in 2010 as a launching pad for a growing healthy-living movement.
Gerasimo presents nationally on healthy-living topics and appears regularly on radio and TV. She splits her time between New York City and her family’s cooperative organic farm in western Wisconsin.
