About the Author

Connie Zack

Connie Zack, along with her husband Aaron, started Sunlighten in a basement in 2002. They had joined forces with Connie’s brother, who had suffered from chronic illness for nearly a decade before finding healing with infrared therapy. Nearly two decades later, Sunlighten has grown into a global company. Connie started her career at Procter & Gamble holding several leadership positions in sales and marketing. Being one of the few female leaders, Connie made a commitment to herself that when she received promotions, she would reach back and pull other women through the organization. Subsequently, Connie served as a member of the P&G Women’s Board - a mentoring program for junior-level female staff. Today, from its Kansas City headquarters, Connie and her team at Sunlighten, design, manufacture, and market infrared technologies, most commonly in saunas. Sunlighten has unique LED infrared technology, patented as Solocarbon™, and more recently 3-in-1® infrared, offering near, mid, and far infrared wavelengths, a first in the industry. Sunlighten prides itself on its new product development pipeline to continue to find solutions for people to live their healthiest lives. Sunlighten was featured in Inc. 5000, as well as appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Oz, and The Doctors television programs. Sunlighten headquarters is also home to Sunlight Day Spa, a premium customer-centric spa experience with focus on holistic healing. Connie is a St. Louis, MO native and received her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Indiana University and also studied Italian and French. Connie has always had a passion for communication and does not believe language should be a barrier. Connie and Aaron reside in Leawood, KS with their two boys, Hudson and Aiden.
