She is currently studying for her Advanced Holistic Nutrition certification.
When CSNN opened up on Vancouver Island I knew immediately that I was meant to go there. I’ve always had a keen interest in nutrition and this seemed like the perfect fit. Throughout my educational experience at CSNN I was inspired by the diversity of instructors and the wide range of courses. It challenged me to think more holistically about my diet, my health and my life and it also solidified my business plans to educate and empower people to cook more (and ferment more) for themselves. I’m still very much connected to CSNN as an instructor there, and also through the network of grads who continually support and promote each other. It is a nurturing environment from the very beginning of the CSNN experience as a student, as well as beyond graduation as people carve out their own careers in the industry.
