I’m a long time nutrition nerd, passionate about eating plants and saving animals while living a healthy life! My first career was as a Licensed Practical Nurse in Canada. I started out in a tiny rural acute care hospital in Athabasca, Alberta and then moved to the Emergency Room in Red Deer, Alberta. I got to see first hand how nutrition is neglected as a healing modality in “healthcare”, and after 12 years I was exhausted, frustrated and ready for a big change. I moved to sunny San Diego and married my soul mate, then began teaching yoga while I put myself back together, mentally, physically and spiritually. Now I’m returning to healthcare, but this time with holism in mind, to help others live their best life while making the most out of every delicious meal and fostering kinder choices for our bodies and our planet.
