Stephen Smith '12, CEO of NOCD

Stephen Smith '12 is the founder and CEO of NOCD, a mobile platform that helps people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) manage their care 24/7 and connect with others who understand them. Under his leadership, NOCD has amassed a community of over 80,000 active community members, making NOCD the world’s largest OCD treatment community today. Stephen is focused on delivering people with OCD multi-tiered care, that helps them engage in a continuum of online support from one’s self, community, and clinician, in order to prevent severe, costly comorbidities from developing, such as major depressive disorder and substance use disorder.

Stephen received a Bachelor of Arts from Pomona College in Chinese and Economics. He was also an NCAA quarterback for four years.

Kenna Sullivan Johnson '09, Co-Founder of Total Sona Fitness

Sona is Gaelic for prosperity and happiness which is the inspiration behind everything that we do. We have two pillars to our business Total Sona Fitness. The first is in-home personal training and on-location group fitness classes on the North Shore. We work with individual clients as well as residential communities and other organizations.

The other pillar of the business is a program that is launching to the public very soon. It's called Sona Online and it is a curated and customized video exercise membership. Think of Sona Online as your very own Exercise Concierge Service. In a world of content overload, we are your Hyper-Focused and Goal-Oriented partner in fitness.
North Shore Country Day School is a junior kindergarten through 12th grade, college-preparatory school founded in Winnetka, Illinois in 1919.  With rigorous academic pursuit as the cornerstone, North Shore provides many opportunities for all students to excel – in the classroom and the laboratory, on the stage and the playing field, in their communities and beyond.
