My name is Jessie, and I am a Certified Nutritionist Specialist, sustainability advocate, and nature enthusiast. I am a self-proclaimed disrupter who is determined to dismantle diet culture and challenge conventional nutrition and societal expectations.
Over the years, I have built a foundation of nutritional tools and techniques that have transformed my own health, and I know they will transform yours as well. I believe food is meant to be enjoyed. It is meant to nourish the body and to connect us with our natural habitats and culture. It is, therefore, my mission to help others reestablish this connection.
We underestimate how interwoven we are with Mother Nature. It is important to understand that we have evolved alongside her and that her future now depends on us. In rethinking our relationship with food and how we choose to consume on a daily basis, we can change our impact on her future.
It is time to reconnect with the one true Farmacy.
