Anna is a 24 year old college student living and working in Evanston, Illinois. Her interest in clean, natural diet and lifestyle choices began out of necessity after a slow but persistent deterioration of her health. Enjoying all things indulgent in her first two years of college, she regularly engaged in its traditions: cheap wine, pizza, anything with the word “fried” before it, and many late nights studying and communing with friends. After picking up one too many microbes during travels abroad, suddenly these things were no longer an option. What began as a dive into nutrition and dietary choices soon expanded into a complete re-evaluation of her relationship to food and the mental, emotional, and spiritual challenges that go along with it. She is now a year and half into a healing process that has taken many twists and turns, forgoing the idea that there is a finish line to chronic digestive issues and instead focusing on the the importance of taking the journey meal by meal, day by day, and breath by breath. She loves sharing her experiences with others with the goal of giving anyone who might need it the hope and camaraderie necessary to finding greater health and well-being.
