Clarissa has an amazing personal story of transformation, and successfully lost 100 pounds that she has kept off, no easy feat.
Now she is a Certified Health Education Specialist with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Promotion which she describes as a “beautiful blend of public health and the psychology of change.”
Clarissa is passionate about Wellness Coaching and making healthy lifestyles, liveable. She enjoys her job at Nutrition Factors where she makes Nutrition fun and practical. One of the ways she does this is by teaching about the GRID DIET which we’ll be learning more about this today’s episode.
