Last month I completed the Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate course offered by the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. I have always enjoyed food but when I became vegan back in 2014 my interest in food issues, ingredients & nutrition began to gradually gain even more depth. My professional & creative work was greatly affected too as I began to turn my lens more & more to the culinary world & focus more on photographing food. Much of my published work to date focuses on vegan food & stories surrounding people committed to a vegan lifestyle & advocacy.
I took the unique & renowned program offered by the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies primarily to learn more about WFPB (Whole Foods Plant Based) diet for myself & then to have the confidence & ability to pass that knowledge on to others. I also have been eager to expand the nature of my advocacy beyond (but still inclusive of) ethical veganism to a more plant based approach for societal & environmental health reasons as well. Very excited to move on & build upon this knowledge!
