Erika Weissenborn is an April 2013 Vancouver campus graduate practicing in Vancouver, BC. Erika is the founder of Fresh in Your Fridge and Erika Weissenborn Nutrition. Before IHN, she completed a BSc in Food, Nutrition and Health at UBC. Fresh in Your Fridge offers a team of nutritionists available to design a personalized weekly meal plan for clients and prepare those meals in the client’s home using organic groceries. Her goal is to teach clients how to eat healthy long-term – while providing support with the most time consuming parts: grocery shopping and cooking. During the process of building Erika Weissenborn Nutrition, she noticed that the barrier to success with healthy eating wasn’t always education, but usually a lack of time and focus in the kitchen. This is where the idea for Fresh in your Fridge came to be. Erika teaches Professional Practice at the IHN Vancouver and has spent years working with clients in a clinical and online coaching setting. Erika was voted Best Nutritionist in Vancouver by Georgia Straight readers in 2016. | | Facebook | Instagram
