Most Memorable Moment at IHN
What I remember most about my time at IHN is the generosity of everyone I met there. I came from a profession that was extremely competitive, pessimistic and aggressive, which left me with a mentality of fear and scarcity.
I was continually amazed at the generosity of the instructors, who liberally gave their time, wisdom and knowledge to help me on my healing journey, and the open-heartedness of my fellow classmates, who always encouraged and believed in me, even when I didn’t have faith in myself.
It was incredibly nourishing to be in an environment that was intuitive, caring and warm, and where it was safe to express feelings without the fear of judgment or negativity.
Favourite Class at IHN
Human Anatomy and Physiology. I had no clue how complex the body is and how many processes need to be flawlessly occurring in sync for us to complete basic functions. I’m just amazed at the beauty of it all, and surprised that we’re all not dead!
Professional Skills, Nutrition Through the Lifespan and my co-op placement were very special to me, too.
Currently Doing in the Field of Holistic Nutrition
I’m a freelance writer, nutrition coach and food blogger.
When I’m wearing my writer’s hat, I work with natural health businesses and professionals who want to help their customers live fulfilling, healthful lives. Using a collaborate approach, I create a variety of content pieces like blog posts, web copy, newsletters, e-books, articles and more that help clients communicate effectively with their audiences.
I also write for a variety of publications and for my own website.
As a nutritionist, I educate people who follow special diets about how to eat simply, deliciously and safely, allowing them to rediscover the pleasure of food. Whether my clients have digestive issues, medical problems, allergies or intolerances that keep them from the foods they adore, I help them shift their mindset from one of deprivation to one of abundance.
