Boy mom, digital entrepreneur, content strategist, TEDx presenter, book author, conference speaker, award-winning multimedia producer and Pulitzer-prize nominated storytelling journalist.  For most of her career, her byline appeared regularly in The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, NPR and PBS; she’s one of only print journalists to earn national awards in both print and radio.  In 2010, while teaching journalism at Emory University, she launched a website in an upstairs bedroom of her home that morphed and grew rapidly into a digital communication agency that was acquired in March 2016 by Staywell; in July, ShareWIK became part of HSS, a subsidiary of Merck, a Fortune 100 company, letting her mom know her journalism degree wasn’t such a bad idea, after all. Diana is an enthusiastic evangelist for using every creative tool in her tool box to create outstanding multimedia and interactive content that helps clients exceed business goals and objectives and rise above the noise and clutter.

This helped pave his journey into local programming and custom content, which later led him to his own production company. He served high profile clients including Piedmont Hospital, The State of Georgia, and Bombardier. In early 2012, Josh joined ShareWIK as one of the first employees and helped build the high- energy startup into what it is today.

Geetha Parachuru

Medical Editor

geetha-1-webfile3-2Humanist, mother (to be), wife, truth-seeker, scientist, entrepreneur, journalist, creator, economist. And in that order. With a bachelor’s degree from Georgia Institute of Technology, you don’t want to be the one that tells her girls can’t count. After undergrad, Geetha worked as a IT project and product manager in Nashville, Tennessee for four years. During the height of the obesity epidemic news coverage in 2012, she could no longer just watch the news, she had to be a part of it. Her insatiable appetite for breaking news accurately led her back in school at the University of Georgia where she completed a Master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism. Shortly thereafter, she transitioned back into corporate America, interning at CNN Health during the Ebola epidemic and working at CBS46 local news, gaining experience as a one-(wo)man-band journalist. Her love for knowledge transpired even further into a Master of Science in Public Health (MPH) at Emory University, where her path bifurcated into ShareWIK and into the world of government consulting. Geetha started her own company within the government consulting space while serving as the medical editor with a hand in everything else (writing, content generation, video editing, production, on air-talent) created at ShareWIK. When she doesn’t have a red pen in hand, you can find her traveling around the world, smiling at strangers, showing love to all her social media outlets, cracking jokes and feeding her passion for fashion.
