"Beth's career path has positioned her as a critical bridge between technical, editorial, and business teams," said Schulman. "She's uniquely equipped to support our current efforts to drive traffic and distribution, develop new ways to monetize our content within the digital space, and build future digital growth strategies for the company.

Said Buehler, "Rodale, with its unparalleled content and brands, is in an exceptional position to capitalize on the growing use of technology in the health and wellness space. I am excited to work with the talented editorial and business teams to build industry leading products, partnerships, and distribution opportunities that will bring Rodale brands to the next phase in digital growth."
