I was taking a break from high school teaching and preparing for the arrival of my first baby when I found CSNN. Having already worked in education for about a decade and getting ready to start my own family, I wanted to better understand how food influences learning, growth and behaviour – so it seemed the next logical step. What I started learning at CSNN brought me down a new exciting path and opened my eyes to fantastic new tools that I now use for helping children and families.
