Graduation Date: October 2018
Most memorable moment at IHN:
I remember the first class of Fundamentals of Nutrition. The instructor came in, started sharing client stories as they pertained to the lesson, and seriously rocked everyone’s world with their knowledge, passion and dedication to the field. This moment solidified my decision to attend IHN.
Favourite class at IHN:
It’s very difficult to choose, but I would have to say Herbal Medicine. I loved learning about remedies that are cheap and within my constant reach. Plants I had disregarded as ditch weeds or flowers, soon transformed into magical superheroes. The instructor is also an expectational teacher, always gentle and encouraging when the material was seemingly tough. I feel so fortunate to have learned from an expert like her.
Currently doing in the field of Holistic Nutrition:
I’m the founder of Rose Hip Holistic, a natural products marketing consultancy that works with wellness brands at every stage of development including business plan and coaching; product development; packaging design and compliance; marketing and sales strategy and consumer research. As well as being a Holistic Nutritionist, I have over ten years of marketing experience gained through a dynamic resume in the consumer packaged goods industry. Most notable was my position as a Product Manager for Manitoba Harvest, the world’s largest hemp food manufacturer where I assisted in managing branded food and supplement products for Costco, Whole Foods, Wal-Mart, Loblaw, Sobeys, Amazon, Well.ca and more!
