About Nina: Nina has over 25 years experience in the health and wellness field and is best known for her compassionate, yet practical nourishment approach. She helps women go beyond deprivation and dieting and live in a vibrant body they love. “Women in this day and age know they should take care of themselves. They know they should eat healthier, sleep more, move more, etc, but...they don’t. I help women move past the reasons why they don’t nurture and nourish themselves, and into the practical reality of how they CAN truly live in a life where they feel truly good in their body and at peace with their relationship with food.” Learn more about Nina on her website: NinaManolson.com
