Leigh-Anne has her Master's Degree in Nutrition Science, is a Registered & Licensed Dietitian, a Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. Her career started as a clinical dietitian and through the years was promoted to positions that allowed her to broaden her skill set. She also has an extensive project management experience to complement her nutrition background, bringing years of leadership, lean methodologies, analytics, collaboration experience and personal passion to the table. 

Her WHY for doing this?  Leigh-Anne has always been a

Running her own business, allows her the opportunity to maximize impact by providing guidance and sharing best practices with organizations globally.

Client Testimonials

 

I've had the pleasure of collaborating with Leigh-Anne on the US brand launch of Seeds of Wellness, a South American chia brand. As a marketing expert with limited experience in the health and wellness space, I've relied on Leigh-Anne's expertise in nutrition, sustainability, and FDA guidelines. Her collaboration has been instrumental in framing our brand strategy and communications. She's a strong strategic partner, a great problem solver, understands the category inside and out, is a true advocate for the consumer, and is just plain fun to work with. 

Jessica Braff,

Freelance Strategy Consultant

Leigh-Anne has been instrumental in helping to build out a recipe and wellness program for us. Not only does she have the dietetics knowledge but also provides a knowledge of the food industry and working with chefs. It is a true pleasure working with her because she provides us with this full package which many dietitians in the industry just can’t.

Morrison Healthcare

As an agency that does a large amount of food photography and recipe development, I had long had Leigh-Anne on my radar as a potential partner but when circumstances arose out of the blue, I finally had the chance to engage her for help writing recipes and descriptions for a website and social media. Not only was she professional, organized and talented but she was accommodating! She jumped right into the fire with a positive attitude and really helped. We will continue to work with Leigh-Anne moving forward and find her to be a reliable, note worthy resource.
