Jessica grew up in Greenville, NC and in 2014 she attended Wilmington Yoga Center’s “Yoga & Lifestyle Teacher Training” where she experienced her life-changing, ahh-ha moment. There she was introduced to the in’s & out’s of our food system and started living a predominantly plant-based diet, cutting out meat and dairy. Energy soared, stomach issues dissipated and she wanted to share the benefits of this lifestyle with others. After losing her grandfather to cancer, she became passionate about alternative cancer research and how food plays a huge part in our overall quality of life, especially during a cancer journey. To further her knowledge in the idea of “let food be thy medicine” she became certified in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University, studying under Dr. T. Colin Campbell. She is thrilled to offer clean, nutrient-dense options to her hometown and to touch the lives in this community.
