I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques and over 100 dietary theories from Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo and low-carb, to raw, vegan and macrobiotics.
My personal passion is WHOLE plant-based nutrition and a holistic lifestyle that's resulted in my own healthy weight loss, vibrant energy & ongoing happiness.
Overall, my education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, good mood food, wellbeing and living well to THRIVE, at ant age. It's what I love!
The ground-breaking Forks Over Knives plant-based cooking certification course taught me the core techniques of plant based cooking and allowed me to explore and practice a variety of recipes and flavours from around the world.
I learned advanced raw techniques and health-focused cooking with no oil, low sodium and gluten-free-options. This amazing training featured world-class instructors, peer support and interactive assignments and set the bar as the standard in culinary education since 2005.
Ultimately however, I like to keep things simple with WHOLE foods and easy clean eating that anyone can enjoy. It's what I love!
