I attended undergraduate school on an NROTC scholarship and entered the Navy immediately after college.  I was in the nuclear submarine program from 1963 until 1970 serving on the USS Triton (SSN-586).I also taught nuclear power technology and inertial navigation.  Upon leaving active duty, I started working for Westinghouse Electric Corporation in the nuclear power business unit.  Over 25 years i progressed through a series of professional and managerial positions.  Highlights include managing the multimillion dollar nuclear training division and creating a joint venture for nuclear power plant instrumentation in Ukraine which still operates today. 

Upon leaving Westinghouse in 1994, I started a business and personnel management consulting business which I ran for seven years.  After retirement from consulting, my wife and I purchased a tourism lodging business in Alaska which we still operate today.

Volunteer activities include President of the Alaska B&B Association, member of the Alaska Tourism Association Board of Directors, parish lay leader.

My Successes

Projects: In the first full year of operation, eatiply™ donated over 300,000 meals to charity by working with restaurants in Minnesota, Arkansas, and Washington.

The Future: Woodbury’s goal is to expand to all 50 states and to have at least 50 participating restaurants in each state. He is seeking an initial round of financing to expedite growth and to greatly increase the number of meals that can be donated to charity partners.  Also, Mr. Woodbury plans to launch another related concept called drinkiply™ which will work on the same partnership concept as eatiply™ but will provide clean drinking water to people in developing countries.
