Founder, Sounds True

With a religious studies background and a passion for community public radio, Simon launched Sounds True in 1985 when she was 22 years old. She had recently returned from a year spent traveling in India, Sri Lanka, and Nepal to study meditation, the practice that continues to anchor her life and inform Sounds True’s publishing mission and business principles.

Familiar to many as “the voice of Sounds True,” Simon introduces each audio program and conducts in-studio author dialogs. She has interviewed such luminaries as Eckhart Tolle, Ken Wilber, Thich Nhat Hanh, Andrew Weil, Caroline Myss, and Pema Chödrön, and has served as executive producer for more than 500 recordings.

Simon is a founding member of the Integral Institute, a long-time member of the Social Venture Network, and a Dharma Ocean Foundation board member. She is a meditation instructor under the guidance of Dharma Ocean director Reggie Ray, who is carrying on the practicing lineage of Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

A recipient of the Working Woman Entrepreneurial Excellence Award and the Women in Communications Colorado Trailblazer Award, and named an Outstanding Woman of Independent Publishing, Simon lectures widely on conscious business practices, authenticity in the workplace, and other topics concerning the expression of values through work.
