I headed up north to Bowdoin College for undergrad and have a Masters in Liberal Studies (MLS) from the University of Denver. When I got interested in food and health, I became a Certified Nutritional Consultant (CNC) and member of the American Association of Nutritional Consultants (AANC). In 2008, I added a Certification as a Natural Health Professional (CNHP).
Major influences: Mollie Katzen's Moosewood cookbook series -- the art of making vegetarian food tasty! Rachael Ray's quick and easy meal prep.
