Hi I am Nina, I am a clinical psychologist, wellness & essential oils consultant, certified raw vegan chef and patissier. 8 years ago I was struggling with depression and eating disorder, which launched my self-healing journey, a journey that led me to Bali and study of nutrition and alternative medicine. I studied raw food at Sayuri Healing Food Academy and other academies. Passionate about food I started to work in kitchens at the age of 15 and worked `in Bali 6 years as a head chef at the Mecca of yoga, The Yoga Barn. I believe every one should be able to find their inner greatness in this life. I share my extensive experience in holistic health and living with women across the world to help them reconnect with their inner self and gain clarity through that process. Food truly was my medicine and means to raise my potential.
