Interest in the Nutrition field has become increasingly popular – and for good reason! I get a whole lot of inquiries regarding my specific education and Nutrition practice.
Q. Where did you go to school?
I studied Holistic Nutrition at CSNN, Vancouver, B.C. campus.
“We are a thriving branch of CSNN, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014 and remain the largest leading school to offer holistic nutrition education in Canada.”
Q. If I can’t attend the school in person – would distance/on-line education be as beneficial?
I personally thrive in a group setting, and found that the learning I gained from the other students, was as beneficial as the lectures themselves. However, I’ve spoke to many graduates who have throughly enjoyed the on-line program, and had nothing but great things to say about their experience.
Q. What does a day-in-the-life look like?
I’ve taken some time for Maternity leave, after we adopted a beautiful 1.5 year old. I do continue to work at Mountain Trek Health + Fitness Retreat, and find teaching has become an incredible passion. Working with other staff has also become very important in terms of my mental health and happiness. After years of so much solo time conducting one-on-one’s with clients, I needed to find more of a family atmosphere. I do work with many distance clients via Skype + FaceTime, and absolutely love this modern-day option. I feel very fortunate to live in a time where we have access to working with anyone and everyone all over the world…and it can all be done from home!
Q. How has this line of work supported you financially?
Working for yourself is a blessing, but it can be a little financially challenging at times. I wrote a business plan, and found that to be a crucial part of my success. Saving for retirement is something I take very seriously and put away for every month. I think that’s important to have on your radar – as there is no pension as a sole proprietor.
Q. Why do you love what you do?
In every possible way, I love my line of work. In fact, I always say, that when you do what you love, it doesn’t feel like work at all. To pour your heart into something that feels helpful to others, is a gift like no other. If I can motivate, and inspire people to make positive changes in their health – I’m the happiest woman alive. I’ve found this type of work to be incredibly gratifying and hope it will be of part of my life in some way or another, forever.
Wishing you all the very best.
