      Joan Moon–

       

      Joan Moon, Ed.D., M.S.N., C.N.M., has a vast amount of knowledge and experience acquired throughout her career. She spent years as a labor and delivery nurse, lactation consultant, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Certified Nurse-Midwife, and a university faculty member. Throughout the years she discovered her innate desire to follow her passion of providing education on women’s health issues. As a natural born storyteller, Dr. Moon has turned this passion into one of the first comprehensive global Institutes, or gathering places, for women to come and learn by sharing stories and experiences while gaining knowledge from the literature with input from researchers and practitioners related to themes of women’s health and life experiences.


      "A degree in every decade,” laughs Dr. Moon, "that's my motto.” She's kept true to this motto for the past 40 years, beginning with a BSN in her 30s, MSN in her 40s, CNM (Certified Nurse-Midwife) in her 50s, and EdD in her 60s. Life-changing events have dotted her professional achievements as well, including a diagnosis of Stage-IV lymphoma that she has since overcome. "What I have learned from that experience is that life is even better, even sweeter if you are able to embrace it with renewed health and strength,” says Dr. Moon.


      Dr. Moon is a born educator. She developed a computer-based, interactive module "A Woman’s World: Discovering the Dynamic Menstrual Cycle” which has been presented nationally and internationally. The module has also been embraced by healthcare providers, parents, and educators all over the world. Her current work for Women's Health Dynamics Instituteexponentially expands this previous project by enhancing the quality of educational materials, adding an extensive gathering place for women and professionals to witness their lives by sharing compelling experiences, and providing resources to help women everywhere properly understand their bodies at every stage of life.


      Dr. Moon lives in Bluffton, Indiana, with Chuck, her husband of fifty years. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with friends, Chuck, her three children, seven grandchildren and travels extensively experiencing new food, exciting cultures, and meeting new people.




    • Betsye Moon Park –

    •  

      Betsye Moon Park MA has long been devoted to enhancing the education and increasing the opportunities of women globally —a characteristic that she is certain she inherited from her mother, Dr. Joan Moon. Throughout her career, this has been an underlying force for her that has always remained present even while she was building and maintaining powerful, smoothly-functioning organizations.


      She joined the Women's Health Dynamics Institute in 2013 as the Director of Operations. A decision that was easy for her because it allows her to support her mother’s work and fulfills Betsye’s own desire to support women’s health initiatives. This is the perfect fit for her based upon her extensive background in management, fundraising, and programming including Interim Executive Director for the Creative Arts Council of Wells County in Bluffton, Indiana, four years of work for Mekong Capital in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, four years of experience as the Joffrey Ballet's Finance Manager in Chicago, IL, and two years as an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College-Chicago. At Mekong Capital and the Joffrey Ballet, she worked extensively with boards and senior management to build long-term strategic plans, recruit and train personnel, and oversee day-to-day operations in a number of different departments.


      Park currently maintains the position of Director of Community Network for ILA, Vietnam's largest English training school, and is responsible for all Corporate Social Responsibility programs that fulfill the mission of educating disadvantaged children. 


      Betsye earned her Bachelor’s degree from The University of Wyoming and her Master’s degree from Columbia College Chicago. She is married to Johnny and lives in Bluffton, Indiana, with their two adorable children. In her spare time, Betsye enjoys running, yoga, volunteering and simply having fun with her family.
