Most Memorable Moment at IHN

I really looked forward to coming to school every day, being welcomed with warmth, smiles and positivity everywhere—even amongst the stress of studying and case studies! I loved meeting so many special people who were likeminded about nutrition and health and whose personal stories helped remind me that what we are learning is valuable and does make a difference.

I think my moment came in Jason Marr’s “Nutrition Through the Lifespan” class when he handed out the story about What’s Happening Upstream? It completely summed up my philosophy on health and I finally realized that I found a school and body of learning that aligned with my own philosophy and outlook on health.

Favourite Class at IHN

It is definitely hard to narrow down let alone pick one. Each class intrigued a different area of interest within me. If I have to pick favourites, then Body Metabolism and Fundamentals would top the list. Not only am I completely in awe of just how much information there is to learn and process, but how amazing and fascinating the human body is, how it functions and how it all comes together. I am forever asking “how” and “why” and love knowing the answers.

Human Anatomy & Physiology and Holistic Food Prep were also noteworthy

Currently doing in the field of Holistic Nutrition

In my Health and Fitness Company we do private, semi private and group training fitness programs for people of all ages. We have expanded the Sports Nutrition component to also include lifestyle and holistic coaching which include meal planning and food preparation along with weight loss and health maintenance.

Recently we have been approached to create more Health & Wellness Programs for the corporate sector and have just wrapped up an eight week pilot project with hopes of standardizing these programs in Corporate Employee Benefits Packages.

Our motto “Get Fit, Eat Healthy, Stay Young For Life” aims to show people of all ages how to make these small but significant changes which will improve the overall quality of their lives.
