Reg. Holistic Nutrition Counsellor,
Certified Personal Trainer
Andrea comes to us with 12 years experience in the not-for-profit sector. She was a Counsellor and Program Coordinator in social services, employment and settlement. Andrea graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Arts Degree followed by a Post-Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management. While working, Andrea became a Registered Rehabilitation Practitioner (RRP) focused on assisting individuals with disabilities to determine strengths and abilities to train them to return to or start a new career.
However, after 12 years Andrea became fascinated with how we can heal our bodies and prevent disease and disability through nutrition and movement. With this new passion Andrea moved to Kitchener to begin a new chapter of her life focused on overall health. She studied Holistic Nutrition and Personal Training while changing her own habits that were no longer benefiting her. In 11 months Andrea lost 100 pounds and completed her studies becoming a Registered Holistic Nutrition Counsellor (RHNC) and Certified Personal Trainer (CPT).
Andrea enjoys treating a wide range of conditions and is excited to bring her Counselling skills, knowledge and personal experience to help others reach their goals!
