BRITTA IS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SAVE BARNEGAT BAY.  THE ORGANIZATION WAS STARTED 46 YEARS AGO AT A KITCHEN TABLE WITH PEOPLE FROM BAY HEAD, MANTOLOKING, AND BRICK FIGHTING TO MAINTAIN THE QUALITY OF BARNEGAT BAY WHICH IS THE LARGEST BODY OF WATER IN NJ.  IT RUNS FROM BAY HEAD TO THE END OF LONG BEACH ISLAND.  THE BAY AND ITS WILDLIFE CONTINUES TO BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY AIR POLLUTION WHICH ADDS NITROGEN, RUN OFF FROM STORM DRAINS AND OVERDEVELOPMENT WHICH DOESN'T LEAVE NATURAL SURFACES TO ABSORB RAINWATER.  THE ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN GETTING LAWS PASSED TO LIMIT POLLUTION  ESPECIALLY NITROGEN AND PHOSPHATE AND OVER DEVELOPMENT OF ESSENTIAL GREEN AREAS SUCH AS MARSHES.   
JILL IS AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST THAT WORKS AT HEALTH SOUTH.  NEED TO BE CAREFUL OF ENERGY VAMPIRES THAT WILL DESTROY CELLS RATHER THAN BUILDING THEM UP.  FACTORS ARE: ENVIRONMENT- HAPPY PLACES, DOWNER LOCATION AND PEOPLE- SOME BUILD, OTHERS DRAIN.  MENTAL- NEED TO BE HERE IN THE MOMENT, NOT DWELLING ON THE PAST OR THE FUTURE.  SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING WILL DRAIN ENERGY.  LIVE LIFE FOR YOU.  HOW YOU REACT TO STRESS WILL EFFECT YOUR ENERGY AND HEALTH.  NEED TO FIND YOUR PERSONAL SWEET SPOT AND BE THERE.
"YOU MAY THINK THE GREASS IS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE, BUT IF YOU TAKE THE TIME TO WATER YOUR OWN GRASS IT WOULD BE JUST AS GREEN"
