We have seen these smart ladies on our NEM boards for the past few months and am excited to OFFICIALLY announce that they are a part of our NEM Advisory Board! There are so many great questions about fitness and nutrition that it’s time we brought in people we trust and are in line with our health philosophy.

Felicia is a busy mom of 4 boys under 4 (including twins). For the past several years, Felicia has been working at a university research centre with a focus on food security (Food Action Research Centre). Growing up in a single mother household has opened her eyes to the fact that not everyone can afford to eat healthy. Her passion lies in working toward a future where everyone has access to enough affordable, healthy, safe and culturally appropriate food, that is produced, processed and distributed in socially, economically and ecologically sustainable ways. In 2014, she published a paper in the Canadian Journal of Public Health titled, ‘Is the Minimum Enough?: the Affordability of a Nutritious Diet for Minimum Wage Earners in Nova Scotia’.

Diane played pro soccer at a young age, but gathered distractions to numb her pains of IBS, various viruses, an auto-immune thyroid disease, UTI’s, hormone imbalance, depression and problematic skin. She took her personal training skills to sculpt herself into a National level bodybuilding figure competitor, then turned in her clear heels for a yoga mat, finding balance in life through a series of positive mantras, asanas, and a trip around the world alone. She realized, cookie cutter nutrition doesn’t work for the masses, nor is it straight-forward to navigate the maze of health advice today. She navigates dysfunctions of the body through diagnostic testing to identify the root cause of dis-ease and a customized approach to heal and thrive, which is what sets her apart and is the REAL key to perfect health, as she cleverly coins the ‘Di-Vinci Code to health’. Diane specializes in hormones and digestion, the seeds of our vitality, and works with loving souls of all ages and health considerations from cancer and auto-immune disease to mood imbalances and stubborn fat loss.
