Judy Ellenburg's passion for nutrition began while finishing her undergraduate degree in science at the University of Guelph in Ontario. Her search for a whole-foods, naturopathic approach to nutrition took her to Bastyr University in Washington where she earned a Master of Science in Nutrition degree. After moving to Alaska, Judy provided nutrition education in clinics and health clubs. Her journey eventually took her into the setting of "work place wellness" where she began focusing on cultivating healthful work environments and assisting individuals in making everyday a healthy day. Judy's ultimate goal is to encourage individuals and communities to make small lifestyle changes that affect their overall health in a very positive way.
