About Kara

“I feel so passionately about nutrition and the way it effects every single aspect of our lives. I do this because it fills me with joy. I do this because I grow from sharing knowledge and listening to others. I do this because it energizes me. I do it because it does me. I do this because I enjoy working with the elements that the earth provides for our healing. My motto is ‘Do Nutrition!’ Quit letting your diet do you!
