Registered Holistic Nutritionist and CSNN graduate Chara, launched her business Chara Marie Nutrition and Fitness post graduation and hasn’t looked back. Her passion for supporting and empowering women through health, fitness and living a lifestyle in which they thrive has been the backbone to her success. Chara’s drive to bring women together connecting authentically about their health and wellness journeys, caught the eye of the popular LA based podcast, Almost 30. Along with her business, Chara travels and works closely with the podcast as their Community Manager. Through leading events locally in Vancouver, working one on one with clients, creating new and delicious plant based recipes, and supporting women globally, being a health coach isn’t a job for Chara. It’s truly a lifestyle she eats, sleeps and breathes.
When my own health issues were not being solved by allopathic medicine, I turned to nutrition – and it changed my life. I knew I had to help others see that there were answers out there to their health problems – I just didn’t know how. When searching for nutrition schools, I came across CSNN. I knew right away that it was what I was supposed to do and I enrolled almost immediately. My time at CSNN was eye-opening, fascinating, and transformative. I’m so glad that I took my health into my own hands, and that I now have the knowledge, experience, and understanding to help others do the same. I love that there are so many different paths you can take as an RHN, too. I’ve worked in supplement stores, wellness centres, ran two businesses – a healthy smoothie delivery service and nutrition consulting, I work with health food brands to create content for social media, and I now have my dream job as the nutritionist for an amazing company helping people achieve optimal health all over Canada.
